Spring into action this Fall with the Addison Park District as we plant tulips and daffodils. Fall-planted bulbs produce the first blooms of next year's season. the bulbs spend the winter making roots and come up early in the spring. So if you think that Fall is the time to stop gardening, think again - it's bulb planting time! Volunteer groups are asked to call (630) 233-7275 to sign up for this free event.
