Also this year part of the proceeds will go to help with the beginning of the restoration of The Rose Garden. We are grateful to The Society Hill Civic Association and the Washington Square volunteers that help keep the Square beautiful for visitors and residents.

Washington Square and The Rose Garden are part of the Independence National Historical Park (INHP). Over the years, SHCA has worked with INHP to refurbish the fountain and to restore the guard houses in Washington Square. This year the tree canopy will be trimmed among the other maintenance needs. Your support and generosity will ensure that this kind of maintenance and beautification will continue.
