Hello Members! Join us on July 23rd for our 2nd Annual CAPS Summer Picnic. Our event will be held from 12:00 – 4:00 at the Wood Dale Grove Forest Preserve in the south picnic shelter in Wood Dale, IL. CAPS will be providing the main dish (chicken or meat) and we ask that everyone bring either drinks, side dish, or dessert to share. Please reply to this post with the total number of people in your party and the dish you will bring. We will also be trading plants and raffling some cool items at the picnic this year. So, if you’re not busy the weekend of the 23rd of July, please join us for some fun and relax with some fellow plantheads! We look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s event.
