The Memorial Garden 

TSS Memorial Garden Project  

We are so excited to be making our plans a reality…our patio is the focal point featuring engraved memorial bricks on the two walkways.  Bricks are available for purchase by a member (for any personal memorials) or for a member.  Our next shipment has a deadline of 10/17/20.  This is the last time bricks will be sold for $120.  Future purchases will be ordered once per year, at the end of each watch.
  Our next phase includes the completion of the pergola, the stabilization where the storm water runoff feeds into the canal, a ramp/walkway to the back fence, the decking along the back fence and our tribute to the 90+ members who had passed away before 2018.  We will be adding handicapped accessible walkways available from the parking lot and the club side walkway.  
  We have an envelop with brick purchase forms, located at the TSS Mailboxes.  Donations-marked Memorial Garden can be set to  TSS  Attn: Memorial Garden P.O. Box 3277, Apollo Beach, FL 33572

Thanks for your support, from Mary Chapman & the Amazing Memorial Garden Crew
