Please check out the Beech Street Circle. Our project this year was planting flowers, and thanks to the contribution from Burnham Centennial committee of 2011, we are able to erect two new pole lamps. We were also blessed with more donations to the circle fund, for which we are very grateful. Many thanks to those kind people.
More groups that have helped us accomplish the beatification of the circle are Bushmen Landscaping and Noah Wise and his road crew for the reconstruction and maintenance. Shouts of thank you go to Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 791 for supplying labor and materials to repair the benches.
