New attraction along Mariners Trail
The Manitowoc Garden Club recently donated and installed a floral kaleidoscope on Mariners Trail. The kaleidoscope allows viewers who peer through a small telescope on the unit to see a beautiful flower pattern created by live flowers growing in a large pot at the end of the telescope. Rotating the flower pot in its holder changes the view. Shown in the photo are Mary Jo Stangel, Diane Goen, and Kathie Nelson of the Manitowoc Garden Club.
The kaleidoscope is located just north of the Chamber of Manitowoc County building, next to the Human Sundial, which was also donated by the Manitowoc Garden Club. Thank you so much to the Club for this beautiful addition to the Trail.
