On May 15, 2010, we opened the doors to the Abbey to get ready for our first event of the season – the Memorial Day Open House. Both new and old volunteers pitched in and the Abbey was dusted, broomed and mopped from ceiling to floor. As you may have noticed, the Abbey has looked particularly “austere” since all the old bushes were removed years ago. While only temporary until a complete site plan can be designed and funded, volunteers donated plants, soil and grass seed to install two raised garden bed on either side of the first floor entrance in what will be a lush grassy area. Once established this should add a much needed touch of color and let people know that this is a cherished and cared for landmark.
