Chicago Master Gardeners/Composters Honors Night

Posted by Ron Wolford -

On Tuesday, November 18 the Chicago Master Gardeners/Composters held their annual Honors Night at Garfield Park Conservatory.

Master Gardeners took a few moments to honor Elizabeth Bruhns. Master Gardener Luis Galvez and his group provided a musical tribute to Elizabeth.

Master Gardeners were honored for 100, 200 and 300 hours of service. Years of service pins were also given for 5, 10 and 15 years.

Master Gardener Independent and Extension projects were recognized.

Ruth Melulis, Mary Olsen and Dick Kress were recognized for their Master Gardener State Team Award for their work with visually impaired adults at the Chicago Lighthouse Sensory Garden.

Master Composter Interns received their certificates for completing their required volunteer hours.

I want to thank Nancy Kreith, Kate Weinans, Sue Gasper, Julie Perteet, Araceli and all the Master Gardeners who helped to organize this wonderful event.
