SBTS Bench Ceremony

Saturday, August 13
10:00 AM
Our SBTS Bench at Deer Island
This year’s ceremony will be extra special, thanks to the generosity and imagination of one of our caregivers, Natalie Bayersdorfer. You don’t want to miss it.

DO NOT PARK in the usual guest parking by the large buoys.PROCEED to Deer Island’s main gate (Security Gate). Once there, MWRA staff will direct you to a parking lot closest to the bench.  If you cannot walk, golf carts will be available for the short distance to the bench.

For our newer members and guests, this is an annual ceremony to honor those we lost within the past year and to come together and let all of our “angels” know that they are still very much with us. As live flowers don’t fare well on the ocean, SBTS uses silk flowers to match our Angels personalities and tastes.
Each Angel is represented . We reminisce, laugh, cry and hug. (Our usual M.O.) We encourage the Angels’ family members to join us. Please feel free to bring relatives, SOs and spouses. Our Angels are:
