Bringing back Blossoms for Books on August 7, 2016
Gearing Up for the Next Garden Walk
Blossoms for Books is what we call the Evergreen Park community garden walk. It benefits the library foundation - a great cause! The last one was in 2012. Now, after a four year breather, several of our members are primping their landscapes for all to see on this year's revival. Some lovely gardens were shown before. Take a look at the evidence that our local area is bursting with creativity. Then come and enjoy the next Garden Walk on Sunday, August 7th!
See the library bulletin or website for more information.
The walk begins at the library and is self-directed.
Another season behind us... a new one on the way
We visited the Chicago Flower and Garden Show at Navy Pier and got together with the library to revive the community garden walk. Next year will be just as informative and enjoyable. Programs in the works include a Pruning Primer and Clutter Busting. New officers were elected during the July meeting. They are: President Ruth Urbanczyk, Vice President Bernadette Schnitzenbaumer, Secretary Deb Howell, and Treasurer Kate Bradley. Beth Donahue will coordinate Hospitality. They will preside over our next club year. Meetings start again in September. Join us and bring your gardening friends!
A side trip to the Meijer Gardens near Cindy's house is planned while there. Contact Beth if you'd like to join in.
Thanks to the Evergreen Park Public Library and their director, Nicki Seidl, for their support during another great season. We appreciate it!
Our officers are always looking for suggestions for programs that members would like to see during the coming season. Already a return of The Blossom Boys is being considered. Contact any of the officers with your ideas!
