Letter: A beautiful transformation in Bristol


To the editor:

Strolling home from an early dinner last week we noticed a flurry of activity in front of the Bristol Post Office. It was volunteers from the Bristol Garden Club completing a much-needed transformation of the greenery in front of the building.

What had previously had the aesthetics of the vegetation next to an I-95 off-ramp was now a stately, pristine garden that complimented the organization's work at the neighboring Rogers Free Library. What a welcome improvement to an important and heavily trafficked building in the heart of town.

At times we take this beautiful town we call home for granted. We should take a moment to recognize those neighbors who devote their own time, treasure, and talent to make Bristol a special place. What better place to showplace their dedication than on a village main street called Hope!

Kudos to the Bristol Garden Club for another job well done.
