Students lay pavers during earlier work at the memorial arboretum
ROYERSFORD PA – Custom artwork in the form of a new mural, designed by a Spring-Ford Area School District alumna, will be officially dedicated Oct. 14 (Saturday) beginning at 11 a.m. in the Spring-Ford Memorial Arboretum, located behind the 9th Grade Center, 400 S. Lewis Rd.
The mural, created by Spring-Ford’s Tia Rohrer and commissioned by the high school Class Of 1966, is being installed as the final touch in a three-year restoration of the arboretum headed by the Spring-Ford Area Board of School Directors, Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center students, and community volunteers.
The arboretum was built in the 1970s to honor the memories of district alumni and community residents. During 2014 the space was seen as “as an area in need of development,” according to the district, and the groups “worked together to restore the garden.”
Dedication ceremonies will be preceded by an arboretum tour at 10:30 a.m. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
