Land Use Plan: Memorial Garden
In 1988 the church designated that a section of the land north of the building would be the Caroline Bartlett Crane Memorial Garden. This land had been donated to the church with the stipulation that it be kept as a green buffer and would not be used for additional building or parking. A decorative wall was built for memorial plaques. The land was basically a bare field so it was decided that people could also plant a tree or shrub in memory of a loved one.
In the almost 30 years since the Memorial Garden was started, many trees and shrubs have been planted and now we have run out of room for memorial plantings either in the Garden itself or elsewhere on the property. People may still inter ashes in the Garden after consulting with the Memorial Garden Committee as to appropriate placement and a permanent record will be kept at the church. If a marker is desired, a plaque can be placed on the Memorial Garden wall.
