On the patch of green that sits between Henry H. Wells school and Route 312, there is a cherry tree and stone memorial monument to Barbara Gillette. According to a 6/10/10 article by Eric Gross in the Putnam County Courier, Barbara Gillette was a teacher at Henry H. Wells Middle School for 25 years, and passed away in March 2010. She served in the Peace Corps, and an endowment has been started in her name. I think its great that we live in a place where we remember those who gave so much to our community.
