Schedel Gardens and Arboretum in Elmore, Ohio, celebrated its 20th anniversary recently during its annual clambake under a giant tent in the gardens.

Guests sipped beverages in the serene setting as the Roger Schupp Quartet with Chris Buzzelli and vocals by Lori LaFevre played background tunes.

A small silent auction enticed many to do some shopping.

The tasty dinner with lobster, clams, and more was prepared by Stella's Restaurant in Perrysburg.

The evening was casual, but the reason for coming was serious for a few moments.
