Iris Award

The Iris Award for 2015 was awarded to St. Mary’s Parish located on Main Street.  St. Mary’s has continually showed pride in making the entrance to the church attractive and inviting. The display of color and texture is a visual treat. The Garden Club commends St. Mary’s Church for their role in making Shrewsbury more beautiful.
