The memorial garden is primarily a place to remember those who were important in our lives, a place of spiritual repose, a place of connection between then and now, and a place for contemplation of what comes next.
The first cremains interred on our grounds in 1983 were those of Jane E. Springer, a founding member of our church. The pergolas and stone pier with chalice sculpture were installed by the Memorial Garden Committee in 2000-2001. The graceful bronze chalice within the entwined Unitarian and Universalist circles, set atop a natural stone pillar, became the focal point for the garden in November 2003.
Over the last few months we have been making progress on the reconstruction of our memorial garden.
