Liberty Garden Rededication Ceremony, Sunday, September 9, 2018

Rededication Ceremony of the Liberty Garden, created in 2002 as a memorial to 9/11 victim Sean Rooney, and expanded in 2009 to include a memorial to his widow Beverly Eckert. Beverly's sister, Margot Eckert, said she was "thrilled and full of gratitude" for the garden. The culmination of a project that began in March, 2018, on Giving Day, the annual 24-hour fundraising event supporting local nonprofits, led by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation. Volunteers led by landscape designer and GNA board member Scott McCauley have renovated the Liberty Garden, replacing the plantings and adding a new flag, flagpole light, and bronze plaque. In addition to the generosity of Giving Day donors on March 1, the project continued to attract support as word spread. GNA is grateful to those individuals, to the Glenbrook Fire Department, and to GNA business members City Carting and View Entertainment.
