Historic Sites of Manitoba: East Kildonan Horticultural Society Plaque (Kil-cona Park, Winnipeg)

Located in Kil-cona Park in Winnipeg, a plaque commemorates former members and activities of the East Kildonan Horticultural Society. Founded in 1967, it has since been reorganized as the East Kildonan Garden Club. A living memorial tree planting-ceremony was held on 19 June 1986, with participants including then-President William Michael “Bill” Hrusovetz (1925-2011, son of Michael Hrushovetz), founding member Doreen Buckley Kadash (c1924-2014, later Garden Club President), and Secretary (also later President) Jean Lorraine Atto (1920-2004).
