Members’ Slideshow

Every season brings pleasure when we stop to look around. This month, enjoy photos of Lake Forest winter scenes taken by Bonita Friedland, Nancy Knollenberg, Judi Lindgren, Marge McClintock, and Nancy Stack. Also, be sure to visit our photo gallery to see wonderful photos of our holiday luncheon taken by Sherri Nichols.

The slide show will pause if your cursor hovers near the picture. Move your cursor away, and the picture will advance. Or, click on the arrows.

“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

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.

A photograph of the late Priscilla Billington, along with words of tribute have been installed in the lobby of the Telegraph Road Train Station.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
