LOMBARD – A memorial will be dedicated June 26 in honor of longtime Lombard resident Dorothy Bergmann at Lombard Park District's Log Cabin.
The Bergmann Memorial Fund, which includes contributions from the Lombard Garden Club and Lombard Woman’s Club, will be used by the park district to build a water fountain and renovate the cabin's totem pole, according to an event news release.
The Log Cabin was special to the Bergmann family because Dorothy's son was part of the Boy Scout troop that created the totem pole in the park area near the cabin, the release stated.
The park district began landscaping in the fall by planting perennials around the cabin.
The dedication will be at 10 a.m. at the cabin at Main and 16th streets, and it will be presented by the Garden Club and Woman's Club. There will be a plaque mounted to honor the Bergmann family's donation.
The program will be followed by the Lombard Garden Club Garden Walk at 11 a.m.
Jane Burke, designer of gardens for the Lombard Park District, will lead the Garden Walk caravan to visit three park district gardens and one school garden.
Gardens include the Log Cabin, Paradise Bay Pool Gardens, William Hammershmidt School Play and Learn Garden, and Sunset Knolls Garden.
Everyone is invited to drive in caravan to each location.
