Thanks for keeping the town beautifulJune 11, 2012
It is my observation, as I drive around the rotary, that the flowers (planted by the Garden Club) are especially lovely this year. The roses at the town hall are called "knock outs" and they really are!
The memorials (including the little red schoolhouse) are outstanding. Some will soon be replaced with new arrangements, which will endure the summer months.
The Congregational Church have added their own flowering urns. The center is alive with color! I believe most think all this "just happens" and that many don't realize these are gifts from the garden club (except church). Mrs. Suzanne Reed (GC) coordinates the center pots in all seasons, however, some of our local merchants also help keep the center as it is.
Mr. John Burney (Meadowbrook Farm) generously donates flowers and pumpkins each year, even though some are purchased from his fine stock.
Rocky's donates 16 remembrance flags each year, which enhance the urns. A team of ladies regularly tend to their beauty and most importantly the team from the DPW (Tom Anderson's crew) is out there routinely maintaining the grounds.
If you happen to have an urn in front of your store, take a few minutes occasionally and water it. Much appreciated.
Thanks to all of the above helping to keep East Longmeadow beautiful!
