November 2022 CGRS Meeting

The November meeting will be at Franklin Park Conservatory – Veridan Room


Program:  FPC staff

Come through the main entrance. Our meeting will be in the Veridan Room.
There is no charge to attend our meeting and visit the grounds so invite family and friends to attend with you.

In addition to hearing our guest speakers from the FPC staff, they’ll enjoy our meeting room with it’s tropical plants, Dale Chihuly colorful glass artwork and beautiful Poinsettia displays.
Please wear your club polo or windbreaker if you have them. A group photo will be taken – indoors or out depending on the weather. Hopefully an outdoor picture will be possible in front of the Busse railroad.

Special Opportunity

Deb Sweet suggests: my friend, Dave Holtzapple, is willing to take family photos around the venues set up at Franklin Park. He is not a professional photographer, but does a nice job if anyone wants Family Christmas photos. Franklin Park has several beautiful photo op locations inside and out.
