About Gibbs Gardens
Jim Gibbs seeks to provide an enjoyable garden experience for all his visitors. Gibbs Gardens has handicapped
parking near the garden entrance. The Valley Gardens are
predominantly wheelchair accessible. The Welcome Center (ticketing, restrooms and The Seasons gift store) and
The Arbor Café are all wheelchair accessible.
The paths in our Valley Gardens are easy to traverse; they
are quite level and wide. There are many benches throughout the gardens that provide a comfortable place to sit
and rest or just gaze around the gardens. The paths are
covered with a ground granite composition that becomes
quite hard in dry weather; however, after days of heavy rain
it may soften a bit causing wheels to become mired. For
the safety of our visitors, the use of wheelchairs, electric
scooters and strollers is restricted on our garden pathways.

board of directors was busy working on several projects
related to the operation of the section. I’d like to bring you all
up to date on our progress.
At our January 16th meeting further discussion on the
operational budget proposal was held and the proposal to adopt
a yearly section budget was brought to a vote. I’m pleased to
report that the budget proposal was passed unanimously at the
January meeting. What this means for the section is that we
can begin to more closely track our income to our expenses

Danny went over the key points for maintaining your

thing is to change your car’s oil on a regular maintenance
schedule. He also recommended that those owners of truly
antique, one-of-a-kind cars should bring them to Bud’s Benz
for maintenance. Members were able to tour the garage, look
at an engine that had been removed from the car, and see
examples of what happens if you DON’T change the oil!

Bob Padovano from Perma FINISH explains the process
The technicians at Perma FINISH completely prep your car

preparation is complete your vehicle is ready for the application of their patented product. Once applied and cured your
beautiful Mercedes-Benz will retain a showroom luster forever. Application usually takes an entire day. We were shown
a 2000 Dodge pickup that was treated with Perma FINISH 16
years ago and believe me when I tell you that the paint looked
like it was brand new.
Sixteen member of the Peachtree section were in attendance
and each had a chance for door prizes. Vince Tobia, owner
of Perma FINISH, awarded several door prizes but the lucky
winner for a free application of Perma FINISH was Roger
McKissik for one of his Mercedes-Benz automobiles.
Perma FINISH is located in Norcross at 5555 Oakbrook Parkway STE 530. Their number is 470-222-4133. Don’t forget
to let them know that you are a Peachtree member. Vince
Tobia, Owner and Peachtree Section Member, said that he
