Bring yourself and your family, kids, significant others, and friends for a tour of the Conservatory at the Como Zoo on Saturday, July 16th at 10 a.m. We’ll travel through the many gardens of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and learn about its 100 year history. We’ll go behind-the-scenes and uncover how the horticulture staff keep the conservatory looking lush and green all year long and produce the many spectacular and beloved Sunken Garden flower shows. The tour costs $12 per person.
It may be spring, with a lovely summer still to come, yet we are looking forward to the hints of autumn that herald Smith Day! (Hint: there may be a Smith Day theme in that opening sentences). Mark your calendars now for Smith Day on Saturday, September 10th and plan to join us for this wonderful event - a day of friends, shopping, bidding, food, and fun to raise scholarship dollars for young women attending Smith. How can YOU help ensure that this year's Smith Day is great?
- Volunteer! Contact Stephanie or Brigid to offer your time and energy.
- Solicit silent auction items and raffle prizes.
- Bring your good quality clothes, antiques and such to the Depot (storage unit).

So enjoy these lovely warm Minnesota seasons and plan for a great kickoff to fall - see you on September 10th at the Hopkins Center for the Arts for Smith Day 2016!
