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 is 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 is 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.
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.
