The November/December issue of Chicagoland Gardening features a familiar facade, with Wilder Park Conservatory taking center stage on their cover. The facility was featured in their 'Tropical Escapes' article which highlights conservatories throughout the Chicagoland area.
Elmhurst Park District Horticulturist, David Price, was quoted in the piece, saying "One of the nicest things about the conservatory is it has a long history."
"We have photos of a grandmother bringing her grandchild here. When we asked, she told us of her memories of her grandmother bringing her. It's a wonderful tradition."
Elmhurst Park District Dance presented their first ever Dance Holiday Magic event on Sunday, December 2. From Suzy Snowflakes to an appearance from Santa, there were many festive performances, which the dancers had been working on throughout the fall.
Katie Loveless, Dance Education Coordinator and Impact Dance Company Director brainstormed the event last spring.
“Parents were telling me that they wanted to see their children dance more often,” she says, “The support from our community and dancers was more than we could have hoped for!”
