Olympic Gold Medalist Matt Grevers at Chalet Nursery
One of Chicago's Olympic hometown heroes, Matt Grevers, will join his dad, Ed Grevers, at Chalet Nursery on Sept. 5 to tout tips and pointers for what makes “best practice” in the garden and the swimming pool. Matt’s fiancée, U.S. swim team member Annie Chandler, will be on hand.
At Chalet, Ed Grevers has led award-winning landscape design teams to victory for more than 40 years. In the swimming pool, Matt Grevers’ victories for Team USA had him bringing home two gold and one silver medal this summer, just as he did in 2008. U.S. team member Annie Chandler brought home her fifth-place accomplishment in the 100-meter breaststroke. The pair became engaged this past February, when Matt proposed to Annie after taking first place honors in a race at the Missouri Grand Prix.
The free event will take place at Chalet Landscape, Nursery and Garden Center, 3132 Lake Ave., Wilmette, Ill. from 3 to 6 p.m.
Bonus! Chalet’s Farm Truck will be on-site with fresh product straight from Chalet’s growing farm in Salem, Wis.
