Past Letters from the Director

Spring Programs

Dear Friends,

With ART in the Garden a month away, I've been thinking a lot about what makes this event a success. Good food is a must, and without a doubt we have that covered. David Ellis Events put together a menu like no other. This year, in addition to the delicious hors d'oeuvres and small plates we have enjoyed in the past, guests can purchase a VIP Dinner table and enjoy an exclusive, three-course family style dinner. If you have not seen the menu click here, it looks delectable!

Atmosphere is also key to a successful event. If you visited the Arboretum this spring, then you know we have this covered as well. The gardens could not be more beautiful this year. Imagine strolling through the gardens with live music playing in the background; I cannot think of a prettier place to hold an event.

While these items are without question important, for me the most important part is the people. To see our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family members come together to enjoy the evening and each other's company in support of this incredible community resource makes my heart sing.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Until next time,




Jackie Kondel
