Memory Garden

 

Midge Tucker is creating a Memory Garden to be located on the front lawn of the Community Center.  It was primarily begun in memory of Eliza Ward, who loved the school, the children, the Historical Society, and the Town of Plymouth. 

There will be plantings of beautiful flowers, a bench on which to sit, and stones in the shape of bricks on which the name of our loved one who has passed can be engraved.   The cost is $25 for each brick, and they will be placed around the garden.  If you are interested in purchasing such a stone, please let Midge or the Town Clerk know.
