Hi Everyone, Special thanks to Gary Wood & crew and everyone from The Sargent and Downing Gardens and Nursery for all the effort that went into removing and replacing the roof for our new Children's Educational Horticulture Center.Gary is a lifelong Beacon resident and his 25 years of contracting experience is what has enabled the Sargent and Downing Gardens to be able to pull this off. By volunteering his experience, we were able to complete this mission for our children and the community.
It would not have been possible with out the community's donations from our "Raise The Roof Fundraiser" and the support of Mayor Gold,The Phelps family, City Administrator Meridith Robson & the City of Beacon's City Council.
We also want to thank our new Mayor Randy Casale who supported The Sargent and Downing Gardens Project from the onset, I still remember my presentation to the Beacon City Council when Mayor Randy Casale said, "We have to get this into the schools and get them involved." I agree it's for the children to enjoy with their families.
I would like to personally thank all the Beacon Business's and the Executive Board of the Sargent and Downing Gardens and Nursery for keeping it together and making it work! It works if we work it!
