Many people have been asking about the Tree Memorial that we have set up for Justine. Below are the details, and attached is a link to a brochure about the Tree Memorial Program. Hopefully this will answer all of your questions.
Information on the Tree Memorial for Justine Fowler
We have chosen a lovely spot located at the far northeast end of Menominee Park. The location can be described as Ames Point/Oaks Trail which is near the intersection of Hickory and Menominee Drive. There is a walking path here that winds around the Menominee Park Bay and it is a beautiful area where we would like to create a living tree memorial to Justine. It is a quiet place with beautiful views and many trees in bloom this time of year. We would like to place a bench for reflection among the trees we plant, that will face toward the direction of the farm. It provides a beautiful view of the lake, and also a beautiful view of the walking path -that is reminiscent of the point road leading from the farm to the cottage - a road that our family and friends have traveled so often. A quiet place of beauty that will remain forever in memory of Justine.
The cost is approximately $200/tree (the range is from $150-$250 depending on the type of tree selected - see brochure).
Included with each tree planting is a 9" x 12" x 2" marker which will be placed in the ground near the tree. The inscription on the marker will indicate the tree species name, and can include up to 3 additional lines, including the name of the donor. For example

Contributions of any amount may be sent. Individual contributions of $10/$25/$50/etc., will be grouped together with other friends or family members for one tree. Other contributions for the entire amount of a tree may include the name of the individual contributor on the marker, however if you do not wish to be named that request will be honored.
