Gogo to a charity garden party in Langley Aug. 9

A garden party and tour of the grounds of historic Michaud House will help raise funds for African families.

On Saturday, Aug. 9 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. there will be live entertainment, a Garden Art Gallery, a Healthy Gardening Display and book sale at 5202 204th St.

Michaud House caretaker Sandra Reames has been baking up a storm and for only $5 people can enjoy her scones.

This is your opportunity to support the Steven Lewis Foundation. The Langley Gogos will be on hand with their gogo bags and heritage jams and jellies for sale as well.

The Gogos are local grandmothers dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation which helps grandmothers in Africa whose families have been devastated by HIV/AIDS.

Gogo, in the Zulu language, is a respectful word for grandmother.
