Remembrance Garden Dedication Ceremony Open to All

Wolfeboro, NH—July 25, 2019—On Wednesday, August 7 at 1 pm, Wright Museum will host a dedication ceremony for its recently completed Remembrance Garden, an event at which Executive Director Mike Culver said “all are invited.”

“This is a space in which the community will forever be welcome,” he said. “This is a community space where we invite locals and tourists alike to visit, reflect and honor those who have served our nation.”

The Remembrance Garden has been enhanced this summer with new plantings and a state, national and MIA flag, improvements made possible by financial contributions from Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB).

“We love this open space that may be enjoyed by all in our community and anyone visiting Wolfeboro,” said Robyn Masteller, regional vice president, MVSB Wolfeboro Office. “We are honored to be part of of the Remembrance garden and dedication ceremony.”

At the ceremony, Rev Lindsay from will offer a prayer followed by the raising of the flags and comments from museum Executive Director Mike Culver and others. The Quilts of Valor will be presented  to three recipients, while Mike Greenham will play the bag pipes.

“It will be a moving, touching ceremony,” said Culver. “The museum thanks Meredith Village Savings Bank and all those responsible for creating this accessible space for all to enjoy.”

Facing Center Street, the Remembrance Garden is framed by the exterior wall of the museum upon which hundreds of memorial bricks are affixed.

“This is a beautiful space outside our museum that I think will attract many kinds of visitors,” added Culver. “All of us know someone who has served, and many of us have lost someone who has served…This space makes sure we do not forget.”

Jami Bourdeau, branch services manager, MVSB Wolfeboro Office, agreed and said the recently completed Remembrance Garden “exceeds all their expectations.”

“We are very moved by garden and surrounding memorial bricks,” she said. “There is a subtle formality to the space that is at the same time very inviting. Meredith Village Savings bank is thrilled to be part of the Remembrance Garden.”

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.
