Investment by Meredith Village Savings Bank to Transform Remembrance Garden at Wright Museum

As a result of a $4,000 investment from Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB), the Remembrance Garden at the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro will undergo a significant transformation in 2019.

The investment, according to Executive Director Michael Culver, will enable the museum to expand the garden to include more plantings and a state, national and MIA flag.

“It is a beautiful public space right on our property where all are invited to sit and reflect,” he said. “It’s already a beautiful space that is now going to be made into a focal point at the museum.”

In 2018, Meredith Village Savings Bank provided funding to plant shrubbery and flowers to help better frame the space, which faces Center Street. 

Commemorating those who served in the military, memorial bricks serve as “a beautiful backdrop to the garden,” noted Jami Bourdeau, branch services manager, MVSB Wolfeboro Office.

“A restful landscape like this will allow people to quietly reflect on the immense sacrifices made during such a critical and devastating time in our history,” she said.
Robyn Masteller, regional vice president, MVSB Wolfeboro Office, expressed excitement at the opportunity to support the project and Wright Museum.

“The museum helps Wolfeboro become even more of a destination spot, adding to and benefiting our local economy,” she said. “We will never lose sight of the fact that our success depends on the ongoing success of the neighborhoods where we do business. For that reason, we are thrilled to support the Remembrance Garden and Wright Museum.”

A dedication ceremony for the garden will take place in August with details to be announced soon.

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, the Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the home front and battle field.
