Before we say goodbye for the summer...a quick look back, a look at what's ahead, and new ways to support Friends of Beattie-Powers


Bigger audiences, more events
Last fall through this spring, we welcomed more people than ever to a record-breaking 35 events, culminating with our 2019 Benefit Dinner. Once again, it was a pleasure to see so many friends, old and new, and we thank you for making our only big fundraiser of the year a success.
Growing more beautiful than ever
The park at Beattie-Powers Place is open dawn to dusk, seven days a week. We invite you to enjoy our new plantings, which are about to be in full bloom. This spring, we also introduced a Master Plan to enhance Beattie-Powers Place with new trees and shrubs the community will enjoy for years to come. 
Become part of our lasting legacy
Sponsor one of our new trees for $500, and we’ll commemorate your gift with a medallion featuring your name. Several have been claimed, but we still have three Flowering Cherry Trees, a Scarlet Oak, two Red Maples, and ten Andromedas awaiting underwriters. If flowers are more your passion, consider endowing our gardens!


A hint of what’s to come, beginning in mid-October

Music:
Five Planet Arts Jazz Concerts
Three TON Chamber Musicians concerts
Bard at Beattie
Piano Recital Series  

Lectures and demonstrations:
Historic home preservation
Gardening and landscaping, including managing invasive
  species and tree identification
Beekeeping

Until then, enjoy the summer, and see you next fall!

"The physicality of Mr. Bisio's bass playing puts him in touch with numerous predecessors in the avant-garde, but his expressive touch is distinctive;..."
