May Tri-Refresher Cancelled
Due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreaks, our country and the world are changing rapidly and our community activities are changing more than most of us have seen in our lifetimes. On March 17, 2020, the National Garden Clubs Executive Committee voted to cancel the 2020 Perfect Vision Annual NGC Convention. The Wisconsin Garden Club Federation (WGCF) was prepared to host an exciting Tri-Refresher for NGC members, from around the world, on March 11, 2020 at Boerner Botanical Gardens. This week, the WGCF leadership along with the Tri-Refresher committee reluctantly voted to cancel the event. Many of our NGC Consultants were looking forward to a full day of learning and exploring an outstanding garden. If you have a chance to visit these gardens at another time, you will be well rewarded for your time and effort.
We are refunding all Tri-Refresher registration fees to those who registered for the event. Our WGCF treasurer will send checks in early April. For those who made a hotel reservation at the Potawatomi Hotel, through the NGC room block, your hotel reservation is automatically canceled. For all others, please contact your hotel directly.
We thank the staff of Boerner Botanical Gardens and our very special line up of top-notch speakers for agreeing to help make the event rewarding and educational. Thanks, also, go to all those who worked so hard over the last two years planning the Tri-Refresher.
