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.
