About the Auxiliary

Thank you for supporting the Arboretum with your Auxiliary membership.

The Auxiliary is a group of Arboretum enthusiasts who volunteer time and talent to support the work of the Arboretum.  Volunteer and educational opportunities exist on many levels for our members.  The Auxiliary presents fundraising events which include:  Spring Plant Sale (in May), Summer Garden Tours (in July), Fall Harvest Sale and Quilt Raffle (in September), and Holiday Sale (in December).

The Auxiliary holds quarterly meetings followed by luncheons with educational speakers.  Workshops and informal get togethers during the year provide educational and enrichment opportunities for our members. We have a Board of Directors and produce a quarterly newsletter. The Auxiliary welcomes all members.

The Auxiliary's quarterly meeting and luncheon is planned for Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019. The featured speaker will be Lani Peck, speaking on “Art and Whimsy in the
Garden.” Along with Mother Nature, gardeners are artists, too. With their own styles and personalities,
they delight in the little extras they create. 

Business meeting at 10 a.m.; luncheon at 11:30 a.m. followed by the speaker's presentation at noon. Cost $13.50. Checks payable to Arboretum Auxiliary, send to Nancy Vogt, 8973 Deer Run Dr., Victoria, MN 55386. All reservations are due no later than Monday, January 28. If you think your check may not arrive in time, please e-mail Nancy at nlvogt@embarqmail.com or call her at 952-443-4736 to alert her that it is in the mail. While you are always welcome to attend the business meeting at no charge, lunch reservations must be made in advance.
