Dear Friend:

As we all continue to survive this Corona Pandemic and the New Normal, we hope that you are well and will remember the little jewel in the neighborhood aka, The Voelker Orth Museum, Bird Sanctuary and, Victorian Garden. 

Throughout the seasons our programs have been available. In the summertime, there are free Shakespeare performances, lawn teas, a Honey Harvest Festival in our beautiful Victorian Garden. Autumn brings fall flowers, the Grape Harvest and our famous Oktoberfest Flushing Style: Sauerkraut & Kimchi with music, raffles and entertainment. It is noted to be one of the best deals in town.  Wintertime brings the Holly Tour when you can visit the local historic houses and sing around our piano, enjoy mulled cider and cookies.  Our dining room becomes the hub for purchasing bulbs, plants, honey and other assorted gifts. Spring is the time for workshops on planting, pruning and shaping house plants and outside shrubs.

This year due to necessity, we have restructured our plans to include virtual programming for safety sake, and are re-introducing limited onsite activity. Please check our website or call for updates. Reservations are encouraged. 

This is such an extreme time, we especially need your support. Please renew your membership at a higher rate, give a gift membership or a donation.

On behalf of the creative and dedicated staff, volunteers and Board,  know that any contribution is put to good use and tax deductible.

Happy Thanks-for-giving.


Patricia B. Sherwood, President of the Board of Trustees
