St. Louis Clemson Club-Whitaker Concert

Grab your picnic baskets, blankets, and folding chairs! We're going to the Whitaker Concert!

We hope you and your family can join us on Wednesday, July 9th, at the Missouri Botanical Gardens to enjoy an evening of music and socializing. Free admission to the park and children's garden begins at 5pm. The concert begins at 7:30. We will meet in the Sunken Garden behind the Center for Home Gardening - look for a Clemson Banner.

We will make sure to have someone there by 5:45pm to secure a spot, but feel free to come whenever it is convenient - admission ends at 9pm. Please try to RSVP either to Sara McBride ( or via facebook by 5pm that day so we can claim enough space for everyone. However, it's usually not too crowded in that area so please come even if you don't RSVP.

In the event of rain or excessive heat, we will move the event to the new Urban Chestnut Location on Manchester which has great food and is family friendly.
