We were very pleased to dedicate Riverwalk today in honor of Roscoe E. Burgess, Sr. Despite the overcast weather, dozens of family members, friends, and townspeople came out to our dedication ceremony. Our guest speakers today included Mayor Ted Flory, Ron Burgess, and the Hon. Anthony W. Bailey. Each reflected on the impact Roscoe had on their lives and those of the Bridgewater community. Afterwards, the granite plaque was officially unveiled along the Riverwalk path.
As noted in closing on the commemorative plaque:
“Let Riverwalk bear witness that we are a better and closer people because of Roscoe E. Burgess, Sr.”
