Bannerman Island to Honor Gardeners

Party and opera music scheduled on July 16

The late Harrison Libby of Beacon, a longtime member of the Bannerman Castle Trust board of directors, will be honored with a plaque in the garden on the island during a ceremony on Saturday, July 16, for his work in restoring the island’s gardens. There will also be a garden party for visitors with a performance by opera singers Lorraine Helvick and Danielle Davis.
