FOR Parks members, including HANC Naturalist Debbie Cash, accepting the check for the new Butterfly Garden at the nature center.

In early May, FOR Parks accepted a check from longtime member, Margaret Kehr, for the express purpose of establishing a butterfly garden at the Harriet Alexander Nature Center. Margaret’s son, Curt, made a special trip here from his home in Texas for this occasion. The big ribbon-cutting ceremony for the garden will be held at the Wild Rice Festival on Saturday, September 19.

Pour FOR Parks…Tapped & Uncorked! at the OVAL last October was such a big success, we’ve set the date for 2015: Friday, Oct. 2, 6-10pm. In spite of less than perfect weather conditions, a great crowd came out and enjoyed themselves, sampling beers and wines, eating food, playing games (Hammerschlagen was quite popular) and supporting our parks!
Here are a few pictures; a slideshow with many more images is in our Photo Gallery.

For all the details on the 16 local craft breweries and wineries, along with the local restaurants and food trucks that participated, go to the separate Tapped & Uncorked! website.

Save the date for the 9th annual Holiday Rose Gala at the Roseville Skating Center, Friday, December 11, 2015, 6-10 pm.
