To the editor:

I want to thank all the volunteers who have helped at the Newton Arboretum keeping it looking so nice! You all are the best! I could not do it without you.

There are too many names to list, but you all know who you are. Whether you’ve helped dig or plant the tulip bed last fall — it was so pretty this spring — or helped plant beds, pots, fertilize the turf, prune, weed, etc., I appreciate it more than you realize! It continues to be the favorite spots for the young and old to walk on beautiful mornings, afternoons and evenings, and what better place to eat lunch?  It is here for the public to enjoy, so if you need a little get away from your daily grind, come on out and relax!

Thank you again,

Terri Swank, groundskeeper
