|May Peace Prevail On Earth|
On Friday, Sept. 27, the Marlborough Early Childhood Center (ECC) dedicated its new Peace Garden, a rock garden that promotes community peace and harmony, to former Interim Superintendent Stephen Dlott. Dlott served as Marlborough’s interim superintendent for the 2012-13 school year.
Mayor Arthur Vigeant read a city proclamation that dedicates the garden to Dlott, “who in a short time, rejuvenated our schools and administration with his warm smile, generous laughter, professionalism and peaceful spirit.”
At the Washington Street entrance to the school, the elevated flower bed was cleared out and a layer of rocks added. A wooden pole that reads “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in eight different languages and in Braille stands tall in the garden by the door. District staff and students are encouraged to look for special rocks to create a garden of peaceful wishes.
Shown below are highlights of the dedication ceremony.
