City Plans Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies


Ribbon cutting ceremonies are planned to celebrate the renovation and upgrade of Castle Manor in Merrifield Park as well as the completion of Rosemary's Garden in Battell Park.

Castle Manor in Merrifield Park, located at 1000 E. Mishawaka Ave., will be reopened with a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 1:00pm. Light refreshments will be served. Originally built by the National Youth Administration (NYA), a subsidiary of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), the building first opened in September, 1941 and has provided a place for the community to come together to celebrate class reunions, family reunions, and weddings for over half a century.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for Rosemary's Garden will be held on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 11:30am. Located along Mishawaka Avenue at the east end of Battell Park, Rosemary's Garden was created in honor of Rosemary Klaer who died in 2014 after serving 23 years on the city's Plan Commission and 18 years on the city's Board of Zoning Appeals.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend both ceremonies.
