  Join the WSHPHS Garden Tour and Beautify John Burroughs!

  The Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society’s fifth annual Garden Tour will be held on Sunday, April 25th, 2010 from 12:00-5:00PM.  Every year the tour opens historic private gardens to the public just at the height of the spring blooming season.  Featured will be six private estate gardens, including a historic walled castle on a stream in Brookside; a spectacular courtyard garden and a garden featuring drought-tolerant plantings.  The Garden Party closes with a reception including a silent auction, light supper and opportunity drawing.    This year the Society is honoring the community work for Margy Hudson who was one of the leaders of the Windsor Square HPOZ initiative, a member of our Neighborhood Council and has served on the Board of the Windsor Square Homeowners Association. 

 The money raised by the tour will be used to fund the beautification project planned for John Burroughs Middle School.  Neighbors to JB, including Schools Committee co-chair Howard Hart, have worked with the school to come up with a beautiful and ambitious beautification plan that will provide tree plantings, landscaping, fencing and other features making the campus more inviting to the staff and students and putting a better face to the community.  For more information visit the Society’s web site:  http://www.wshphs.org/; email:  info@wshphs.org or 213-243-8182.

 Don’t forget, if you haven’t already, mail in your dues!  Your dues support efforts like the JB Beautification and let you vote in the election for Board of Directors.  For information on where to send in dues click on CONTACT US.

Sincerely,

Cindy Chvatal-Keane
