With sympathy

Marilyn Lundquist’s husband, Gordy Lundquist
has died. The article is in the News Tribune.


Calling all gardeners!  No experience required. 

We want to make sure our grounds look nice for the tour, so we need to get rid of lots of weeds. The Building and Grounds Committee has been busy pulling  some, but there are always more.
Can some additional volunteers come to the Club next Friday, the 16th, at  about 9:30 am before it gets too warm? If that day and time don’t work for you, come anytime some days before the tour. Bring your trowel and gloves. Thank you!

Bloom Watch: Wednesday, June 23

Rosebud watch continues! With each week bringing new blooms, we have decided to explore the Rose Garden and the Lakewalk this summer. We will meet on Wednesday, June 23 at 1 pm at the parking lot by the Rose Garden on 13th Avenue East and London Road. After checking out the Rose Garden, we will walk on the paved Lakewalk. If you would rather skip the walk, there are benches in the park and along the Lakewalk. There are a lot of photo possibilities along one of Duluth’s favorite Lakewalk stops.
