The Curb Appeal team has been hard at work these last few weeks restoring the Betty Anne Connolley Memorial Garden, along with some assistance from the Town of Chestertown, who constructed a small retaining wall to prevent soil and mulch from washing away. The Spy has always admired this secluded spot, located at the corner of Mill and Cannon Streets by the Sultana boat yard, even in its disarray.
Nancy Butler, Curb Appeal Chair, said in an email that, “Patsy Hornaday, who was so instrumental in the Chestertown Beautification Committee, provided Curb Appeal with newspaper articles and information about the original garden. According to the original plant list, many of the small plants are gone, but are being purchased and replaced.”
Butler went on to say, “It is starting to look like a special garden again! Please stop by to see all that is happening!” We did and encourage others to do so as well. If you would like to support the efforts of Curb Appeal, please send your donation the Downtown Chestertown Association (with Curb Appeal on the note line) to P. O. Box 745, Chestertown, MD 21620.
