The Bridge of Flowers Committee
The day-to-day maintenance of the Bridge of Flowers is overseen by a committee of the Shelburne Falls Area Women’s Club (SFAWC). All are volunteers. Each member of the Bridge of Flowers Committee assumes responsibility for a different aspect of the bridge, including maintenance, publicity, budget, and liaison to area businesses. The Committee meets monthly and works to plan major events in support of the bridge, such as the annual Plant Sale. Membership on the committee is by nomination and is voted on by the full committee. The committee furnishes monthly reports to a meeting of the SFAWC.
The Bridge of Flowers Committee was initiated by the Shelburne Falls Area Women's Club in 1929. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and its gardeners and volunteer members work hard to keep the Bridge's many flowers, plants, trees, shrubs and vines growing beautifully throughout the season.
