This month’s members-only social in the garden will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Saturday, February 13, at 2:00 with a Valentine cookie contest. Make and bring your favorite Valentine cookies to share. Everyone in attendance will get a ballot to vote for their favorite cookie. The first place winner will receive a garden gift basket and the runners-up will receive prizes, too. Winners will be announced at 3:30.
