Middlesex Historic Society Mansfield House Spring Clean up

  A message from the Middlesex Historic Society- & invitation extended to the public:
Dear Members,
Chairman of Buildings and Grounds, Joe Samolis, is issuing a call for volunteers to help clean up the Mansfield House yard and gardens on Saturday, May 5 at 9 am.  Members Bonnie Penders and Lois Bukowiec have already tended to the herb garden, and member Sally D'Aquila has taken care of the boxwoods, but the rest of the yard needs raking and clipping and weeding.  As it is said, many hands make light work, so the more who help out, the quicker the task will be completed.  I have several rakes here, but if you could bring your own and a pair of clippers, that would be helpful.  We'll have coffee brewing for those who need a boost!
Our yard is an oasis in the downtown area and we are justly proud of it.  The more beautiful it is, the more likely we will be able to rent it for parties and events, a goal under our new budget adopted last evening at the annual meeting.
If it is pouring rain, we will postpone to Saturday, May 12, but hopefully we will have sunny weather.
