Orchids & Onions 

Orchids & Onions 

Orchids to all the businesses involved in the 12 Weeks of Christmas raffle. Their creativity and passion is inspiring! 

Orchids to Steuber Florist & Greenhouse for donating beautiful mums, pepper pants and a planter to add fall color to the fabulous yard in West Beverly showcased on BAPA’s Beverly/Morgan Park Garden Walk in September. The Steuber family is not just generous to BAPA and our community, they are artists with their plants, flowers and arrangements.  

Orchids to the garden owners, sponsors, partnering businesses, entertainers, experts, volunteers, team at Edna White Community Garden and Mother Nature (it was a perfect fall day!) who helped to make BAPA’s first Beverly/Morgan Park Garden Walk a success. Plans are already underway for Garden Walk #2.  

Orchids to all of the wonderful musicians who performed porch concerts over the spring, summer and early fall, and to the homeowners who offered the porches for the performances. BAPA hosted and livestreamed several concerts, which helped bring our community together virtually. Special thanks to the Doyles of 98th and Prospect who hosted an Irish folk singer for a recent Sunday performance.  

Onions to pet owners who bring their pets into the cemeteries. Please be respectful of the rules posted on signs.
