DuPage Friends of Extension

Dear Friends,

The DuPage Friends of Extension wish to Thank You for your past support of our fundraisers which support the University of Illinois Extension Outreach Program.
Remember the 4-H Program! Well, it still exists and many others thanks to your support.  The STEM program is now a part of the Extension programs. As you know, a state budget does not exists. This means that year over year, the Extension programs are in jeopardy. We still need your help!  So save the dates for our 2 annual fundraisers in 2017. Your participation creates our success!  See flyers on our events web pages.

SAVE the DATE- Saturday April 8, 2017! 
Silent Auction Fundraiser-- Gardeners' Christmas in April,
at the Extension office, 1100 E Warrenville Rd. Naperville, IL.  Auction items include various garden items (including gift certificates from local nurseries), restaurants dining certificates, gift baskets, spa services, and more.  You don't need to be a gardener to appreciate the choices. There are also 2 presentations- Invasive Species and Your GardenBirds and Butterflies Light refreshments are served.  Masters Gardeners and extension Educators are available to answer your gardening questions.

SAVE the DATE-  Saturday, July 15, 2017!
 Brunch at Ball Gardens located in the Ball Horticulture Gardens in West Chicago. Gardens are located at 622 Town Rd. Share in great food, live music, silent auction and fantastic people (YOU)! Add sunshine and beautiful plants, this makes a great day and outing.  Bring friends, families, neighbors and new friends. The gardens are wheelchair, etc accessible.  Brunch is served indoors!  Master Gardeners from the Extension will provide guided tours. 4-H members and others will provide the music.
