To the Editor:
The Board of Trustees of the Heritage Preservation Trust of Newtown, Inc.—which administers the Newtown Meeting House—wishes to publicly thank the Horticulture Club of Newtown for its continued support in beautifying the Meeting House grounds.
On Tuesday, May 21, a dedicated group of Horticulture Club volunteers and planted over 400 begonias along the front of the building and in the barrels at the curb. These efforts will be appreciated by people attending events at the Meeting House, as well as everyone using Main Street, throughout the summer and early fall.
We also take this opportunity to publicly thank those who assist us in maintaining the grounds. Shakespeare’s Garden supplied the plants; and Rob Connor and his crew at Connor Landscaping, LLC care for our lawn on a weekly basis. These business people display a sincere personal interest in doing their very best for the Meeting House—and it shows!
The Meeting House is one of Newtown’s historic gems and we are very gratified by the continuing high level of community volunteer spirit and commitment.
We urge readers to remember that the Meeting House is available for public and private events; individuals and groups are invited to visit our website at www.newtownmeetinghouse.com, or call (203) 270-8293 for information.
