Just to tell you a little bit about us; the Garden Club of Harrington Park holds General Meetings the first Thursday of every month (except when otherwise noted) September through June in the Harrington Park Library (second floor).  The meetings begin at 7:30 P.M. and include a lecture by a guest speaker on various gardening topics.  Each meeting we have a floral contest, whereby members interpret a given theme.  We have a Field Trip at the end of our Club year, along with a luncheon.  Our meetings are open to everyone who loves a garden and gardening.  You can check out our activities and events for the Club year by clicking on the "2018-2019 Calendar" button.  This is a tri-fold calendar listing our activities.  Please print it and keep it handy!
