A big shout out of thanks to Rod Cleveland, Diana Althouse's brother, who is laying the paving stones in the Memorial Garden. Rod, who attended All Souls Church as a child, has also donated the supplies for this project.
Thank you, Rod!

Thanks to the vision of Diana Althouse and to church members who donated labor and funds, the rebuilding of our Memorial Garden is coming along beautifully. John Cobble is tending the wisteria and will be replanting it at the new trellis. (The old wooden arbor had to be discarded and could not be repaired.) The two black vases will not be out all the time, just when someone has a service. The original stones that are off to the side on the right will be set in the ground making a firm pathway and we are making plans for a bench or two to be placed.
Soon, the Memorial Garden will be a place that ashes can be scattered or buried (no containers can be buried).
This will be a nice spot for wedding photos as well.
Blessing of the Animals at All Souls Braintree, October 1, 2017, with Rev. Clyde Grubbs. We were delighted to have cats, dogs and a bird with us today, also pets were with us in spirit. A lovely service. All were quiet and well-behaved. Video by Maggy Evans from Pictures by Michelle Walsh.
