Thanks to a group of 11 Main Street volunteers led by Karen Lawton, Bonnie Silbaugh and Kathy Milligan, the petunia and sweet potato vines were planted in 32 baskets for the downtown. Design chair Karen Lawton credits the great working relationship with the City of Jefferson for purchasing the plants and supplies through our local businesses and having the City Street Dept. crew water the baskets throughout the season. The Design committee plans for the plants each season and provides the volunteers to plant.
The pillar planters will be changed out to petunias before the Bell Tower Festival. If anyone would like to be put on the email list of “Flower Power” to know when these projects are being completed, please email Peg Raney at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 515-386-3585. We welcome you to be involved in making our downtown beautiful!
