St. Anselm’s participated for the first time as a site on the Brookland House and Garden Tour. It is sponsored annually by the Greater Brookland Garden Club. The Tour included seven private homes and two religious houses where visitors were welcomed and shown the house and gardens. The Abbey is somewhat distant from the other locations and we were surprised by the number of visitors who came. They were Brooklandites and sometimes visitors from out of town with them. It was fine June day and an enjoyable afternoon offering hospitality, letting others know we have been here eighty some years and hope to stay.
