Thank You to Volunteers

Dear Editor,

It warrants some word of appreciation that on a recent weekend, there were some energetic folks at French Square, diligently bustling away in the park. Directed by a Woodside Ave. resident and also a minister (originally from the South), and coordinated with Betsy Shane, the Chamber’s ED, a volunteer group of about a dozen men & women from Arkansas (no less!), in the spirit of a generous, community effort for this town, had mowed the grass, trimmed the lawn, watered shrubs and flowers, and spread the numerous bags of mulch that were placed in beds throughout the Square. Their efforts may or may not have been noticed by residents; other than the appreciable difference it made in the appeal and appearance of the Center’s centerpiece – a sole uplifting relief of green. But it also accentuated the inviting presence that this emerald space does make in the center of the Center. This group deserves some word of public thanks for the seasonal re-beautifying of French Square.

 With the outstanding zinnias, daylilies, hostas and other flowers throughout the Square, further thanks to the Beautification Comm. Sponsors should not ever be overlooked for their ongoing, perennial efforts.
