Two memorial plaques rest under majestic sycamore trees at the intersection of Ocean Road and Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton.
These beautiful tributes were placed under the aegis of the Ladies Village Improvement Society’s Memorial Tree Program.
They honor the memory of lives taken much too early:
Jenna Joy Vertullo, aged 43.
Oliver Edward Culver, aged 20.
The beach glass is added by passers-by on their walks back from nearby Main Beach.
The Ladies Village Improvement Society was formed in 1895 “for the maintenance and preservation of historical landmarks and for the maintenance of ponds, parks, greens, and trees in the Village of East Hampton and vicinity, as well as for charitable and educational improvement and the advancement of the general welfare of the Village of East Hampton and vicinity,” according to LVIS.
