Fond Farewell to Marge's Flowers
Please help congratulate Gloria and Ron Kalmes, owners of Marge's Flowers, 8038 Lincoln Avenue, who are retiring on Friday, May 15. Marge's Flowers opened in April 1950 by Ron's parents, and the generations of the Kalmes family have been an important part of the Skokie community. Countless beautiful plants and floral arrangements from Marge's helped residents celebrate family milestones, holidays, happy occasions as well as commemorating memorials and funerals for friends and loved ones.
