Members and non-members are welcome.
Attendees will discover new member benefits, learn about plans for future gardens, a new mobile app and meet the new class of graduating docents. Activities will be available for children, prize drawings and a silent auction will be held for adults. Among the auction items will be an original oil painting by Annette LeMaire, as well as merchandise from local retailers and nursery partners.
