Event Description:
This Memorial Day weekend, Mount Grace will host a celebration of veterans at Alderbrook Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Northfield. Veterans, their families, and the whole community is invited to enjoy the wheelchair-accessible Gunnery Sergeant Jeffrey S. Ames Nature Trail that meanders along a wooded path and loops around to an accessible wildlife viewing platform over a beaver pond. Bill and Nancy Ames, donated the property to Mount Grace and had the accessible trail named in their son’s honor after he became disabled from his military service. The day will start with a welcome from Mount Grace, the Ames Family, and the Northfield Park Committee, followed by a demonstration of the Freedom Chair initiative by Bobby Curley of the North Quabbin Trail Association. The group will then make its way down the trail for a guided nature tour, taking time to take in the beautiful property, read the interpretive signage highlighting the historical and cultural importance of the site. Please RSVP using the form at the bottom of this page. At the waterside viewing platform, Joe Stacy, chair of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Northfield Post, will address attendees, followed by a moment of silence and a flag ceremony in recognition of Memorial Day. A casual lunch and refreshments will be available for attendees after the walk. Mount Grace is encouraging people with mobility challenges, veterans, families, and community members to join us and be part of this day recognizing a special property, its accessibility, and veterans who have served our country.
