our long-time Partners of The Garden
Dave Fleming and Shady Brook Farm

Janney Montgomery Scott, LLC
Shady Brook Farm, owned by the Fleming family, is one of the last working farms in historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Flemings are recognized throughout our community for their generosity, which extends to The Garden of Reflection. From donating trees and other plant materials, to being our 5K Run/Walk Title Sponsor, we are forever grateful for their continued support. Dave Fleming, Owner & Manager of Shady Brook Farm, has also been a stalwart volunteer for The Garden since its inception and currently serves on the Board of The 9-11 Memorial Garden of Reflection, Inc. We are proud to honor Dave for his commitment, dedication and generosity!

We thank Janney Montgomery Scott, LLC for their continued support as our Title Sponsor along with McCaffrey’s Markets as our BBQ Sponsor!
As you might imagine, this has been a very difficult fundraising year for the Remembrance Fund which is why we appreciate your support at our Golf Classic. If you cannot join us this year in person, please consider a tax-deductible donation for the Remembrance Fund Endowment to preserve the memorial in perpetuity. You can also take one of our many sponsorships available and know that we appreciate your generosity very much. Our goal is still to reach $2 Million in the Remembrance Fund by the 20th Anniversary of the attacks on our nation and we are over half way there! Donations over $2,500 will be forever remembered on our Endowment Donor Plaques and be displayed prominently at The Garden of Reflection memorial. Supporting the Remembrance Fund is a great cause…one that will ensure that future generations will Never Forget!
The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial was created to remember and honor our loved ones and all 2,977 killed on September 11, 2001. The 9-11 Memorial Garden of Reflection is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
We look forward to seeing you at the 9-11 Memorial Golf Classic this fall!
