Holden Arboretum Outing & Picnic
Saturday, June 3

The OSC Fellowship Group has arranged a visit and guided tour of the newly-renovated Holden Arboretum horticultural gardens (9550 Sperry Road, Kirtland, OH 44094) on Saturday, June 3 from 10am to 1pm. The guided walking tour will be through gentle paths throughout the gardens and a tram will be available for those needing assistance (for up to 10 people). We also have the option of seeing the new Murch Canopy Walk and Kalberer Family Emergent Tower after our guided tour — both provide spectacular views of the hardwood forest canopy. If you have not been to the arboretum since these features have been built, don’t miss this outing (www.holdenarb.org/visit/canopy-walk-emergent-tower). After our tours, we will have a simple picnic lunch on the beautiful arboretum grounds. Sandwiches and soft drinks will be provided. Please mark your calendar and look for more information in the Sunday Rolling Stone. The fee is $12/person for the guided tour and an optional $4/person for the Canopy Walk and Emergent Tower; $16 for both. Contact the church office to register.
