The Village received a donation today of some lovely personal effects from Mr. & Mrs. Harrold Gurley. The pieces are family heirlooms passed down from the McCutchan and Hornby families. The beautiful pieces will now become part of the living story of the Village! Thank you so much for your donation and for your consideration!

"Hi! Here’s my “selfie” of what I’ve been doing during the lockdown. It’s a little garden I’ve put in just outside of my cats’ room (aka the guest room), complete with bird feeders and a birdhouse, a corn holder for squirrels, and bird baths. My kittens are spellbound!" Susan Wilson

Hi Everyone! Miss seeing all of you!
Here are pictures of my Pandemic sheltering. I didn’t post my selfie because I have been working in the yard and painting. Had dirt and paint all over my face. Haha! I’ve been enjoying the sunshine, my dog, Lucky, repainting all my outdoor pots and ornaments, planting flowers and herbs, cooking home made meals, sewing face masks, sitting on the deck watching the birds and horses, occasionally watching my great grand daughter, as her parents are essential workers and working from home. Loving my new outdoor office!!!

Upcoming program on September 11, 2019 at the Mees Center! We will be talking about native plants and discussing how to incorporate them into the landscaping. Thanks to the Master Gardner and Master Naturalist Volunteers who work at the Historical Village garden there will be onsite examples as we tour the beautiful garden! Please register online at: https://web.extension.illinois.edu/registration/?RegistrationID=20790
All the sweat is worth it! The gardens are lovely. I send a special thank you to my Master Naturalist/Master Gardner colleagues. You guys are the best!
