“I have a garden of my own,
Shining with flow’rs of ev’ry hue;
I lov’d it dearly while alone,
But I shall love it more with you.”
– Thomas Moore
A photograph of the late Priscilla Billington, along with the following has been installed in the lobby of the Telegraph Road Train Station:
The Deerpath Garden Club of Lake Forest is most grateful to the late Priscilla Billington, a long-time Lake Forest resident and a 35-year member of our garden club. Because of her donation, the public enjoys the beautiful urns that grace the west doors of this train station. We honor her spirit and her life and thank her for her generosity.
