Bringing in the potted flowers at dusk had always been the routine for the community, but now that it’s May the plantings can stay out all night.

The plantings at the 9/11 memorial at Shoreham Fire Company No. 3 are beautiful. The yellows and purples next to the walkway really catch your eye. If you haven’t visited you may drop by at any time.
