Thank You Festival of Trees

The Rocks Village Memorial Association received a grant for 2017 from the Festival of Trees.

This money will be used to re plaster the interior that has water damage from when our roof leaked.

You will also see work being done on the exterior of the building this year as we will be re glazing the windows and repairing and painting the trim.  Also with Festival of Trees money.

The Methuen Festival of Trees organization has invested over $1,500,000 in funds to preserve our area’s historic treasures.
