Dear Members,

Several weeks ago, family members and friends gathered at the Boxwood Garden on the museum complex for the second dedication of engraved bricks. They traded stories and remembrances. Over the past several months, Southold residents and visitors have wandered around the garden, enjoying the variety of “messages” and sayings they discovered on the bricks.

Now is the time for you to be a part of the Boxwood Garden. One of the bricks will make a wonderful and thoughtful gift for a loved one. Grandchildren will be delighted to see their names on the brick walkway with a message crafted just for them. Using the brick as a celebration of an accomplishment, such as a graduation or an award, is a great recognition of a “job well done”!

We’re coming into the gift-giving season. Give the gift of history---being a part of the Boxwood Garden!

Karen Lund Rooney, Director
