Mark Cichorski, president of Central States Dahlia Club will be the guest speaker at the March 5, 2014 meeting of the Garden Club of Oak Park and River Forest. This is GCOPRF’s only evening meeting and will be held 6:30 p.m. at the Oak Park Public Library, 834 Lake street, Oak Park, Il. Mr. Cichorski’s presentation will be “Dahlias-Living Fireworks. The meeting is free, and open to the public. There is parking under the library and in parking garages along Lake Street.
“Pinkies Up” would have been a fitting call to the Garden Club ladies to begin the elegant tea held Wednesday afternoon at Cheney Mansion. The 100 year old Cheney looked beautiful inside and outside. The much younger attendees looked splendid and cheerfully chatted with friends, admired the garden’s latest additions, and enjoyed a tea on par with the Drake Hotel, in my humble opinion.
On behalf of the tea participants, thank you Barbara Graham and Sue Milojevic for the beautiful tea and flower arrangements. Thank you Poppy and Charlie for the gorgeous surroundings at Cheney Mansion.
