A message from our president, Sue Milojevic: “On behalf of the Garden Club of Oak Park & River Forest as well as FOPCON, I would like to thank you for attending the 2016 Garden Walk. The day was quite a success thanks to you. Even though the weather was a little hot & sticky, you had the opportunity to visit some of the loveliest gardens in Oak Park & River Forest. Hope you can attend next year when a whole new round of gardens will be open for viewing.
Thanks to your support the Garden Club and FOPCON have raised over $10,000.00 to support scholarships and other educational activities. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
Our October meeting featured Scott Stewart, presenting Lurie Garden.
