December Club Meeting - The Polar Express

Don't miss the December 11th Polar Express event from the Junior Gardener's Club.

10 a.m. at the Education Center - The Oregon Garden

We have a dramatic reading of the book (The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg) to begin the program, then will enjoy watching the film version. Hot chocolate and popcorn will make a warm and fun family environment for this holiday event.

Kids attending the event will also be given a special gift at the end of the program...a little something to help them "believe."

Free for Garden members and Junior Gardener's Club members
Non-members: $5 per child, plus Garden admission
