Godfrey Sponsors LCCC Garden Show

Story by WBGZ Radio

The sixth annual Garden Show at Lewis & Clark Community College will celebrate this year's 200th birthday celebration in Illinois. Representatives from the college gave those present at a recent Godfrey Village Board meeting a sneak peek at Bicentennial Blooms.

LCCC Horticulture Manager Ethan Braasch says this year's theme is influenced by a deep admiration for America's heartland and recognition of Illinois' many contributions to the nation over the past two centuries.

The gardens are supported by local groups and private donors. Godfrey Trustees voted to become one of those donors at this week's meeting, approving a $5,000 sponsorship.
