Be a Part of the Esther Manz Memorial Garden
The Esther Manz Memorial Garden, located at TOPS Headquarters, is part of a designated garden district in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. An arbor with grapevines marks the garden’s entrance, where a patio leads to a large stone memorial and seating area. Visitors may walk the 1/8-mile trail and take in yellow roses honoring our KOPS® members who Keep Off Pounds Sensibly®, sugar maple trees celebrating our Canadian members, and cherry and pear trees to remind us that the fruits of our labors taste sweet. Plus, benches along the path offer a place for rest and reflection.
The most celebrated part of the Memorial Garden is the winding pathway lined with engraved bricks honoring TOPS member’s both past and present. Making a donation for a brick is a perfect way to say “Thank You” to a leader that continues to inspire you, or a way of encouragement and congratulations to a fellow KOPS. Use this certificate (PDF) to let the honoree know of the gift in their name.
