Our downtown flowers look beautiful, every year, but that’s not a fluke. We have many hard-working people who make it happen. The Tomahawk Area Gardeners (TAG) 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!
Business owners 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 $45 to sponsor a hanging basket or planter — or, learn how to water and donate your time to TAG! 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, one is already being sponsored but we are looking for one sponsor for the other. These serve dual purpose to showcase additional flowers and provide siting space. Cost to sponsor is $300 which covers the building materials, name plaque and the first year of flowers for the wells. The Tomahawk High School technology students build them for a class project. If you would like to sponsor or for more information on the project please contact the office.
