Commemorative Bricks Now Available

You can now order Commemorative Bricks that will be incorporated into the Garden on the Hill project at Alumni House.

As they had lost many classmates over the years, members of the Class of 1964 came up with the idea of establishing a ‘Garden on the Hill” in cooperation with IAFSA. The Committee envisions the garden to be used as a place of learning, reflection, and serenity for all alumni, students, and faculty as well as a memorial garden for alumni, friends, and faculty.

The Garden on the Hill will be located immediately to the left of Alumni House, on both sides of the sidewalk, including the flower bed currently occupied by miscellaneous groundcover and ferns, to the fence at the back of the property and to the neighbor’s property line.

The Committee is mainly funding the garden by selling engraved bricks, which will become an integral part of the garden. Suzanne Higham ’86, owner of Frog Hollow Landscaping of Georgetown, MA, designed the garden and is donating her services.

Your brick purchase today will help to fund Phase One of the project: clearing the long flower bed along Alumni House including small ragged bushes, removing two misshapen spruce trees and brush, and prepping the area.

All brick purchases and donations will go toward establishing and maintaining the garden and are tax deductible.

A Garden on the Hill Fund has been set up and will be administered through IAFSA.

At the same time, Commemorative Bricks are also available to support the Henry Whittemore Library.

The Garden on the Hill Committee is working with Framingham State to get the word out about the two opportunities to buy bricks to commemorate someone who is special to you.

You can use the same form to order bricks for either fundraiser, but each brick must be on a separate order form.
