WWI-Plants

Happy Birthday Charlotte!!!

Charlotte's Mom: Therese Marcy and JilMac maintain the Annuals & Perennial plants at the park.

July 19th

After the John F. Brosnahan Square Bronze plaque was discovered by Steve Barrett Director of Public works, it was re-installed at the World War I park.

Blue Pots were set below the plaque. This became to much of a temptation for those who want to deface the American Flag - and the flags were burned around the 4th of July for a few years. The blue clay pots were replaced with large planters that could be kept in the park year round. In 2020 the burning flags fell onto the pot and burned that too.

In 2020 a large in-ground garden was planted. Each year additional perennials are planted. This picture is of the light pink Anna's Chrysanthemums in September 2021.

The tree is a Fringe Tree

What we started with in 2009

The wall had just been re-built, the two stone benches and granite block in place.

And John Brosnahan bronze plaque found and mounted.

Steve Barrette Director of Public Works asked the Brattleboro Garden Club if we could do some plantings.
