Our downtown flowers look beautiful, every year, but that’s not a fluke. We have many hard-working people who make it happen. Volunteers water the flowers every morning – and that’s a monumental task! It takes almost two hours to drive around town and get those flowers watered. Every morning!
Volunteers also work hard to weed around the planters and keep trash out of the flowers. We are so appreciative of everyone who lends a hand.
The flowers for downtown cost almost $3,000.00 every year. Donations to the program are always welcome! If you can, please donate the $50 to sponsor a hanging basket or planter — or, learn how to water and donate your time to ! Any contribution is welcome and appreciated.
The flower bench project currently has 9 benches along main street and one at the public parking lot at Somo Ave and 2nd Street. We have two more benches being built to go in the 200 Block of W Wisconsin, which will close out that project. These serve dual purpose to showcase additional flowers and provide siting space.
NEW this year will be wrap around pole baskets. As our previous baskets were aging out, new replacements were being researched. We are excited to be upgrading to H2O Labor Saver 28″ Wrap Around containers. Our once daily watering requirements will be of the past as these will allow us to water every 3-4 days. They also have a 10-year guarantee on them to know we will have beautiful and long lasting baskets on our investment. This project will cost us $5,000 as each basket costs $165 to upgrade.
