The Garden Club has recently received five awards from the Garden Clubs of Illinois. We won a 3rd place Myrtle R. Walgreen Memorial Award for a Civic Project, and an Honorable Mention in “Planting for Pollinators.” Both awards stem from the Civic Beautification Project at the Oak Park Art League.
We also tied for 2nd place for our Garden Therapy program conducted by Sue Milojevic and Gina Sennello, and an award for greatest number of new members among clubs with 100-299 members. We received a Special Award rosette because the first two projects were eligible to compete nationally. (July, 2020)
