Board Members Lou Vijaker and Beth Copeland at our tent on Mother’s Day

It was a grand Mother’s Day at Hendricks Park, a bit hot but nobody cared. Board members and other Friends helped direct traffic at the parking lots and greeted people at our tent in the Rhododendron Garden. The park was at the peak of the rhododendron bloom and in great shape due to the hard work done by staff and weekly volunteers. If you haven’t visited the park lately, there is still time to get there and see the beauty.

Reflecting the care given to the Rhododendron Garden, Hendricks Park received 13 awards at the annual Rhododendron Flower Show competition hosted by the Eugene Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society on Saturday, May 6. Hats off to Emily Aune, head gardener!
