The Historical Society of Forest Park's Garden Walk in 2023 was a tremendous success, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers, board members, and garden hosts. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors: the Gillian Baker Team, Grand Appliance, and Lauren Burjan @Property, whose contributions made this event possible.
With the help of 23 dedicated volunteers, our Garden Walk was organized seamlessly and efficiently. Their hard work and commitment to the cause were invaluable, and we are deeply appreciative of their efforts. Additionally, our board member played a crucial role in overseeing the event and ensuring its success.
We are incredibly grateful to the 10 garden hosts who opened their beautiful gardens to the public. Their enthusiasm and willingness to share their horticultural knowledge created an inspiring and educational experience for all attendees. The variety and splendor of the showcased gardens captivated visitors and contributed to the overall success of the event. A huge thanks to Michelle Melin-Rogovin for hosting our first-ever pre-party for volunteers, host. and members.
Through the combined efforts of our sponsors, volunteers, board member, and garden hosts, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal for the Garden Walk. The funds raised will enable the Historical Society of Forest Park to continue preserving and promoting our community's rich history and heritage.
Once again, we extend our sincerest thanks to the Gillian Baker Team, Grand Appliance, Lauren Burjan @Property, the 23 volunteers, the board member, and the 10 garden hosts. Your support and dedication have made the Garden Walk of 2023 an unforgettable and impactful event. We look forward to your continued partnership in our future endeavors.
