Celebrate Fall at the Dallas Arboretum


 

Celebrate Fall at the Dallas Arboretum

 

Take a journey to the Land of Oz at the Dallas Arboretum’s 12th annual Autumn at the Arboretum fall festival.

 

This year’s theme, “Pumpkins, Squash and Gourds, Oh My!” highlights The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, complete with a real yellow brick road spiraling through the Arboretum’s Pecan Grove. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is excited to be a returning sponsor of Autumn at the Arboretum, which runs until Nov. 22.

 

Celebrate Fall at the Dallas Arboretum

 

More than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash, along with hay bales and cornstalks, were used to fill the Pumpkin Village and build Auntie Em’s house and the Wicked Witch’s castle. Other stops along the yellow brick road include Emerald City, the Scarecrow’s Garden and Munchkinland, where you can purchase pumpkins and participate in family-friendly activities.

 

Along the way, you can also see the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Horses of a Different Color — all artistically recreated by the Arboretum’s horticulturalists.

 

“Our 50-member horticultural team goes to great lengths to create that ‘wow’ factor,” said Dave Forehand, vice president of gardens at the Arboretum. “Last year, a quarter of a million people came to Autumn at the Arboretum, and we hope even more people will come see this amazing display.”

Chandler Lindsley’s Cookbook Details All the Ways Pumpkin Can be Enjoyed


Cookbook author Chandler Lindsley appeared on Channel 8’s Good Morning Texas on Monday to promote her new cookbook, and the TV station played up the fact that she is the granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. But we’re highlighting her here because of another familial relation: she’s the mother of one of our associates, Ruth Lindsley.

Chandler’s latest cookbook, Dallas Arboretum Pumpkin Festival Recipes, was inspired by the Pumpkin Village that sprouts each year during Autumn at the Arboretum. Resplendent in an orange sweater, Chandler showed the television audience how to make pumpkin hummus, and she also brought along some pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin muffins.

Sound good? Then pick up the cookbook in the Arboretum’s gift shop for the low, low price of $4.95.

Tour des Fleurs Runs Smoothly With Dave Perry-Miller & Associates’ Help

Dave Perry-Miller & Associates was the presenting sponsor of the annual Tour des Fleurs races at the Dallas Arboretum. Saturday’s event featured 10K and 20K runs that offered stunning views of White Rock Lake at sunrise.

The Arboretum’s Martin Rutchik Concert Lawn provided a scenic background of natural beauty for walkers and runners on either end of the competition. Proceeds from the Tour des Fleurs support the Arboretum’s mission of bringing outstanding horticultural beauty, world-acclaimed research and cutting-edge educational programming to the people of Dallas.

Each competitor received a shirt, a cap, and a backpack bearing the Dave Perry-Miller & Associates logo. In addition, the company had a booth at the post-race party, where volunteers distributed water bottles featuring the logo and the Dave Perry-Miller slogan, “Marketing properties of quality and character.”

“The water bottles and hats seemed to be big hits among the runners,” said Dan Koller, public relations manager for Dave Perry-Miller & Associates. “But what was more gratifying was the handful of competitors who approached our booth just to thank us for sponsoring the event.”

Several Dave Perry-Miller associates — including Marissa Fontanez, Kimberlee Gromatzky, Lance Hancock, James Martin, Mysti Newberry Stewart, and Melanie Till — were among the nearly 2,000 competitors. The  overall winners were Tony Clement (10K in 31:26), Kristin Swisher (10K in 35:20), Barnabas Kirui (20K in 1:08:27) and Elizabeth Northern (20K in 1:16:38).

There were 1,361 recorded finishers in the 10K and another 605 in the 20K. Prizes for the top five overall finishers of each gender in each race ranged from $400 to $75. The top three finishers in each age group earned $150, $100 and $75, respectively.

Lance Hancock (9) was among the Dave Perry-Miller associates competing.

Of course, most of the competitors were motivated more by the accomplishment of finishing the course than by any monetary prizes waiting at the end.

“This event brought together people of all ages, shapes, and ethnicities for a common cause,” said Dana Rigg, who passed out water bottles with fellow Dave Perry-Miller associates Taylor Gromatzky, Gaynelle Henger, and Bonnie Pautler. “It was truly inspiring.”
