We Welcome Your Creative Ideas

We are very grateful to have received such overwhelming support from the town and so many generous people who love Manchester-by-the-Sea. As we find donors for the remaining  benches to reach our initial goal of 30 benches, we will celebrate together with those who have embraced our mission and who mark their personal progress toward health and wellness by walking bench to bench.

If you or someone you know have an interest in participating in the donation of a Longevity Bench or the land to place it on, we are very excited to hear from you. Together, we began this Project and together we will reach our goal. Email us or call 978-526-4491.

1. The Longevity Bench Project will meet with property donors to have their location confirmed and measured by pad sponsor, Jeffreys Creek Land Contractors.

2. The location will then receive confirmation from the town’s Department of Public Works (DPW).

3. The personalized commemorative plaque wording will be confirmed by the property, pad and bench donors.

4. The bench sponsor, Keystone Ridge Designs, will begin production of the bench (allowing 8-12 weeks lead time).

5. The pad will be installed on the property donor’s site.

6. The bench with commemorative plaque will be delivered and installed by Jeffreys Creek on the prepared pad.

7. The Longevity Bench Project will celebrate with donors and add the new bench location to the website map.
