The garden is in full Spring bloom, the birds are singing, the Koi are swimming in the pond, the picnics, events, music, readings, weddings and Writers-in-Residence are all back at Weymouth and there is a bustling feeling of renewal every day. I know this sounds like an animated Disney movie but it’s literally your Weymouth Center. You can feel this spirit when you are on the grounds. It’s infectious…. but the good kind of infectious! Folks are excited to be back out and Weymouth is the perfect place to be. Get over here and get caught up in the excitement. The signs of rebirth are everywhere.
Yours for Weymouth,
Ashley Van Camp President, Friends of Weymouth
