Join us as we explore Mary's lifelong relationship with flowers and make a small bouquet like those Mary carried!  Family stories recall that Mary's love of flowers began as a child, when the Todd home had a garden with lilacs, roses, and other flowers. The "Floral First Lady" program will take place in the formal parlor and garden of the Mary Todd Lincoln House. The cost, which includes light refreshments and the bouquet, is $15 for members and $20 for nonmembers. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Advance registration is required by May 5, 2017 by calling 859-233-9999.
