Never Say Never! Our Latest ‘Garden Party For Six’ Winner

Sep. 6th, 2016 by W Scott McAdam Jr.

In August, Jenn McCloskey was newly transplanted from Palatine to Forest Park. One day, she figured she would swing around the corner to the McAdam Nursery & Garden Center to pick up some flower boxes in support of her new home’s beautification project.

At the cash register, because her purchase exceeded $100, her name was entered into a drawing for the McAdam Garden Party for Six.

“I didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” she says. “I never win anything.”

Of course, we are all familiar with the phrase “never say never.” So now, after Jenn’s name was selected from among those whose names were entered into a recent drawing, she is looking forward to a September 17th Garden Party with five of her friends.

In addition to the wine, cheese and other refreshments, Jenn plans to pick up mums and see what other opportunities await as McAdam builds up its fall inventory.

The Nursery & Garden Center is open through at least the end of October and, weather permitting, into November. What might you find on your next trip?

Nursery and Garden Center hours: Monday through Friday 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM, Saturdays 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM, Sundays 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Phone: 708-771-4903.
