The FHRA celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the Shakespeare Bridge garden on Nov. 17, 2013.  Neighbors were joined by students, parents and staff from LILA and students read Shakespearean sonnets.
Retired city structural engineer Clark Robins talked about the art and architecture of the bridge and its arches. Local author and historian Donald Seligman recounted the history of the neighborhood surrounding Monon Street. Councilman Tom LaBonge partnered with FHRA to help organize the event. 
LaBonge presented the FHRA with a certificate and asked LILA students to read it to the audience. FHRA board member Shirley Mims chaired the event with other board members Chris Boutelle, Elizabeth Richardson, Tim Cowell and Charley Mims. About 70 people attended. It was a fun and interesting day in this peaceful spot under the Shakespeare Bridge.
