Our new club officers have been working hard preparing a roster of informative and fun presentations this coming season. The Blossom Boys will be back in April 2017 for an encore of their popular demonstration of Flower Arranging. Next February's program will feature professional organizer Colleen Klimczak who will also discuss arranging - your stuff! A trip to the Chicago Flower and Garden Show and our annual Plant Sale is also on the agenda.
Thanks to the Evergreen Park Public Library and their director, Nicki Seidl, for their unwavering support!
