Andersonville Celebrates Earth Day Weekend With 4th Annual Flower And Garden Show - edgevillebuzzTuesday, May 01, 2018
Show is not your typical flower show and does not happen (to the best of my knowledge) in other neighborhoods,” said Andersonville Chamber of Commerce Community and Events Manager Laura Austin. “What makes it unique is we try to incorporate all of our sectors into this event but allowing for outside merchants to come in and pop-up in a participating location.”According to the Chamber; expect to see some great arrangements at businesses including Andersonville’s new florist Foyer Shop (1480 W. Berwyn), a pop up by returning favorite Marguerite Gardens at Foursided (5061 N Clark), in-shop floral arrangements by Youth and Yarrow at Milk Handmade (5137 N Clark), A Pretty Flower in the lobby of The Guesthouse Hotel (4872 N Clark), and a plant sale with the Peterson Garden Project. There will also be Landscaping demos conducted by City Spaces Landscaping & Design (appearing at The Guesthouse Hotel both days), as well as Red Stem Native Landscaping at Women and Children First (5233 N Clark) on Saturday at 11 a.m.This year, the show will coordinate with Earth Day (Sunday, April 22) weekend and the Chicago cleanup day (Saturday, April 21). Several area organizations will participate with environmental programming including the Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project who will be hosting an Earth Day tree walking tour, both the Winona Foster Winnemac Carmen (WFWC) Block Club and the West Edgewater Andersonville Residents (WEAR) will host their Earth Day cleanup events, and the West Andersonville Neighbors Together (W.A.N.T.) will woodchip the path along Rave... http://www.edgevillebuzz.com/news/andersonville-celebrates-earth-day-weekend-with-4th-annual-flower-and-garden-show

WHITE HOUSE ADDS LAWN BOWLING TO EASTER FESTIVITIES: Thousands of people are expected to attend the 140th White House Easter Egg Roll, which takes place today. The event has added new activities, including lawn bowling. CNN: “Orchestrated by the East Wing, the festivities are Melania Trump's second crack at the Egg Roll as first lady and her first as a full-time White House resident. Last year, Trump, who was living in New York through the completion of the school year, oversaw the event, which marked a scaling-down and return to basics for the annual eggstravaganza. But this year's Egg Roll will showcase a first lady who has more fully embraced the role of White House hostess, just weeks before the White House holds its first formal state visit with France. This year's Egg Roll will feature activity stations, including the first lady's new addition of lawn bowling, as well as the egg rolling, egg and cookie decorating stations, a state egg display, cards for troops and costumed characters. The White House is expecting nearly 30,000 attendees at the event, which will feature entertainment from the US Marine, Army, Air Force and Navy Bands. Readers at the reading nook will include the first lady, director of national intelligence Dan Coats, Secretaries Elaine Chao and Betsy DeVos, and director of legislative affairs Marc Short. ... In addition to the thousands of hard boiled eggs on the South Lawn, guests will receive an official wooden White House Easter Egg, which this year features a presidential seal on the front and the President and First Lady's signature on the back. The Incredible Egg, which provides all 30,000 real eggs for rolling, dyeing, and eating, also provides the first lady with a commemorative egg gift of her own. The 2018 Commemorative Egg, the 41st of its kind, was designed by Master Egg Artist Deborah Grassel, who holds a Masters in Egg Art from the International Egg Art Guild." https://cnn.it/2GuBPba* LOCAL NEWS *AUSTIN: This year’s Moontower Comedy Festival, which runs April 18-21 at venues downtown, has announced its full lineup.
