Happy retirement, Kite!

The Bow Garden Club would like to thank the area businesses that donated supplies and services to help restore the “Garden of Hope” back to its former glory in time for Concord’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event at Memorial Field on October 20th. Thanks go out once again to Pleasant View Gardens in Loudon for donating an impressive amount of their lavender-pink chrysanthemums, to Cole Gardens in Concord for their donation of needed soil amendments and to Tasker’s Landscaping in Loudon for its donation of bark mulch to help beautify the garden and to keep it moist and weed free. Special thanks to “Kite” a devoted City of Concord employee who has watched over the Garden of Hope throughout the years, has seen that the mulch has been spread and that the garden is well watered every year so that the garden can be enjoyed by the public with all its beauty. Happy retirement, Kite. We will miss you.

Note: Located in the lower level of Memorial Field, The Garden of Hope is a cancer ribbon-shaped garden, approximately 10 feet by 20 feet, dedicated to all those touched by breast cancer. It is planted by the Bow Garden Club in both the spring and fall and includes granite pavers engraved with the names of corporate sponsors and a meditation bench.
