The Preservation Society of Union City IN-OH will host its annual Garden Tour on Saturday August 27, 2016 from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. The rain date will be August 28. Tickets are $10 per person and are available at the City Building at 105 Columbia in downtown Union City and at the Antique Mall.
There is an exciting line-up of homes for the tour that this year features gardens, decks, pools and ponds. As always you will have an opportunity to get ideas for your own gardens and homes.
The homes of Luciano Banda and Sergio Banda are situated facing the Indiana Ohio State line just two blocks south of Chestnut St. At the corner of South St. and State Line you will find unique plantings and a welcoming fountain at the home of Lucio Banda. On all sides, visitors will find a beautiful array of plants. The patio has carefully laid stone work and leads you back to South St.
Next at the home Sergio Banda, just one block to the north of Luciano’s home you will see plants surrounding the home. At every turn there is one more surprise from the baskets hanging from the tree in front to the stone and metal work in the beautifully planned gardens. Think of the view from the porch in early morning light as you look out on the flowers leading up to and surrounding the home.
If you enjoy the sounds of water and nature, the Hufford home at 218 S. Plum is the spot for you! The garden, pond and deck are a labor of love and reflect the hours of work that have made each corner of this hidden garden a surprise. The coy pond, the decking, stone work, and the plantings transport the onlooker to another place in time. The sounds of bubbling water and chirping birds in the trees create a perfect spot for relaxation and imagination.
Leaving town West on Highway 28 just beyond Jackson Pike, just a short distance on the right you will find the Durbin home. As you drive up to the white home with the elevated porch, you will imagine living in the South. Once you have parked in the long paved drive, to the west of the home, you will see the gazebo situated on the pond. Don’t be surprise if you hear the sound of horses that are in the stables and the ring just beyond the pond. Who wouldn’t want to have lunch at the gazebo or maybe a mint julip or sweetened iced tea as you gaze on the beautiful rural landscape. Lovely plantings surround the home and grounds.
When you arrive at the intersection of Jackson Pike and 28 on the southwest corner at 1602 Jackson Pike up a long winding drive, you will find yourself at the Gelhaus home. As you slip through the gate at the back of the home, be prepared for one of the most beautiful pools in the area. Sorry, no skinny dipping! Whether by early morning, midday or a starlit sky at night you will feel transported and can take in the beauty of water and sky. In addition the home is surrounded by carefully manicured plant

Cameron Romero will be at Firehouse Pipes on Friday, July 1st. Come out and listen to what he has to offer for the creative crowd. Firehouse Pipes is located at 226 N. Plum St. in Union City, Indiana. Help share and "Like" the Firehouse Pipes and Wymer Design & Promotions Facebook Pages for more exciting events to follow.
Q. What can people expect from your seminar at Firehouse Pipes?
I'm not generally known for sugar coating things so I'd say people can expect a no bullshit experience. I don't speak to groups to blow sunshine. This is not an easy business in which to find and earn a living. All I can hope is that people take away some good advice about the lifestyle and commitment a career in film.
> Q. What is it about J.B. Beverley and his music that inspired you to make a film about him?
J.B. and I have been best friends and brothers for about a decade now and we have always worked on or collaborated on various creative endeavors. We've seen each other through some great times and some not so great times as well.
He invited me to join him on this tour and while we were on the spring leg, my inner creative and filmmaker brain kept getting louder and louder in my head so I started to listen and what I saw became something I had no choice but to make.
There are a lot of parallels in our lives and in our careers but there is one constant between us and, I believe, all artists who have dedicated their lives to their craft. That constant is the ever present inner struggles that we go through as musicians, filmmakers, writers, poets, painters or whatever. The struggle that is punctuated by outside forces or people who both consciously and unconsciously seem to work to make people like us question our own resolve.
Traveling across the country together, I've had the privilege of seeing something filmmakers don't often get to see or experience. I've gotten to see fans and friends of both his and mine try to lift is both up when the doubt comes about anything and it's truly a perspective on our beautiful country and the people who make it move that most people will never get to see unless someone like me documents it.
So the short answer to your question is that I really just want to share a journey with viewers and hopefully tell a story that may inspire just one person to not give up and to keep moving forward no matter how hard that decision may be to make.
> Q. Growing up the son of such a legendary father (George Romero) do you feel you were destined to be in the movie business? Has the Romero last name been a blessing or a curse to your career?
> Q. Who are your current favorite Directors?
Shall I go on?
> Q. You have worked extensively with Tom Sizemore, is he your favorite actor to work with?
Working with Tom is always one of my favorite experiences as a director. In my opinion he is one of the best true actors of our time and he has always been a consummate professional on set.
We spend some time talking about his character, the scenes of the day, the overall goal for the film and generally just shoot the Shit for a bit. When it's time roll camera, he's there, in the moment and when he walks on a hot set, there is a feeling that a movie star... a real movie star is about to do his thing.
I also always hand him a trinket like a zippo or a pen when he gets to set and he takes it, owns it and always... always surprises me when he figures a way to work it into his character or a moment.
It's always an honor to work with Tom and I can't wait to do it again.
> Q. What are you goals at this point in your career?
To live free and create.
