On July 15, 2017, Keep Mansfield Beautiful supported the Mansfield Garden Club's dedication of Mansfield's Gazebo in memory of Lucretia Mills.

Many of Mansfield's long-time supporters, volunteers and city officials, along with the Mills family, turned out in dicey weather to acknowledge Lucretia Mills. Lucretia had a special passion for the gazebo project and worked tirelessly to create a special place for weddings, family photos, seasonal decorations and flowers.

As the storms held off, many spoke with fond memories of Lucretia for over an hour.

Keep Mansfield Beautiful supplied the thirst-quenchers and Mansfield Garden Club impressed all with their enticing display of sweets.

Everyone enjoyed the camaraderie and beautiful gazebo decorations and landscaping provided by the garden club.

The Mansfield Gazebo is located on Walnut Creek and Broad streets for all to enjoy.
