Join us Wednesday, April 3 and Sunday, April 7 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm for a “Hands on History” lesson & craft. Interpretive Curator Emma Marston will teach all attendees about Des Plaines’ unique history during the 1930s as a major producer of flowers, specifically roses. All attendees will have the opportunity to create and take home mini-greenhouses. This event is free due to the generosity of VFW 2992.
