Event Details

Is your BBQ grill greasy and disgusting?  Are your favorite gardening tools dull, rusty, and crusted with last year’s hardened clay?  Are you afraid that when you use a chainsaw to cut a tree limb that you might instead cut off one of your limbs?  If so, then join the UT Arboretum Society for a series of talks by Downtown Hardware Company’s Roger Clary on Saturday, March 9, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the UT Arboretum Auditorium, 901 S. Illinois Avenue, Oak Ridge.  Come for all or part of the program, according to your interests:

Attendees are welcome to bring sack lunches if they are staying until 1:00 to have tools sharpened.
