Children Corn Maze

A gorgeous fall day to host the Make-A-Wish picnic at Willow Springs Garden.  Attendees included  Make-A-Wish families and their wish grantor/volunteer.

The round barn in the background was moved to this location.  It is currently undergoing a facelift. To see the logistics of moving the barn to its present location and the restoration process visit

The purpose of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to grant the wish of each child between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 who has a life-threatening medical condition. There is no cost to the family in fulfilling a child’s wish.
