The Connection: Be Merry and Mingle was held on Thursday, December 16, 2010 at Meijer Gardens in December amidst the Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibition. It was a great night full of Christmas festivities including a coffee bar, cookie decorating and many different desserts. Cookie decorating is a lot of fun no matter how old you are!
One of the best parts of the night was seeing the decorated Christmas trees exclusively with the other guests at the event. It was such a nice way to relax during the holidays and network with the other guests. There is no other place around here where you can see such beautiful Christmas trees and then enjoy the tropical warmth of the Lena Meijer Garden Conservatory. No matter what the season, the Gardens always provides the perfect setting to be merry and mingle.
The Connection, a membership level at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, is a vibrant group of community members in the West Michigan Area in their 20s, 30s and 40s who wish to help “promote the enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of gardens, sculpture, the natural environments and the arts” in an innovative and fun way.
