We dedicate this Tower Garden, a most precious parcel of land on the campus, in memory of all the people who suffered as a result of the tragedy on August 1, 1966. This event touched our community in a profound way, and it is our hope that this Tower Garden will be a place where people can come for reflection and renewed serenity.
