Public Invited To Remember Town Benefactress On Anniversary Of Her BirthThe public is invited to visit Edmond Town Hall today, where copies of Miss Hawley’s will and trust documents will be available for perusal on the anniversary of Miss Hawley’s birth in 1857.The public is invited to stop in to The Mary Hawley Memorial Room within Edmond Town Hall today, where copies of Miss Hawley’s will and trust documents will be available for perusal on the anniversary of Miss Hawley’s birth in 1857.Also on display will be a “Star of Gifts” painted by Newtown resident Michelle Rosenthal and donated by Mr and Mrs Ron and Lynn Buttner of Newtown. The star depicts six gifts that Miss Hawley gave to the Town of Newtown.Guests may also sign the guest book.Edmond Town Hall was donated by Miss Hawley to the people of Newtown in honor of her great grandfather Judge William Edmond. The historic building continues to serve the community 89 years after its construction.Miss Hawley had the foresight to include a proscenium theater, office spaces, and other elegant and useful gathering spaces that, along with a modest annual disbursement from a dedicated trust fund, have made it possible to generate most, though not all, of the revenue needed to operate the building.Miss Hawley is best known for her generosity to the community through her gifts of the town hall, Hawley School, Cyrenius H. Booth Library, and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at the head of Main Street, among others. She also made generous gifts to many other organizations in surrounding communities.Margot Hall, chairman of the Edmond Town Hall Board of Managers, the group of electors that oversees the building and staff, said the board takes pride in honoring Miss Hawley every year on her birthday.“While our community continues to enjoy her many gifts, her true and lasting legacy is her generosity,” said Ms Hall.Although owned by the Town of Newtown, Edmond Town Hall is managed by a bipartisan Board of Managers composed of six members serving six-year terms. At each regular town election, two members are elected, both of whom must not be from the same political party.According to the Town Charter, the board “shall have exclusive care and maintenance of Edmond Town Hall and all grounds and buildings appurtenant thereto, and shall have the status, powers and duties set forth in Special Act No. 98 of the 1931 session of the General Assembly as amended by Special Act No. 517 of the 1953 session of the General Assembly, which acts shall remain in full force and effect, except to the extent superseded or revised by this Charter.”
