To the Valley News:
Now that they leaves have turned and are beginning to fall, I’d like to send a thank you to all the community members who have worked, since spring to make our town a more beautiful pleasant place to live.
Judy Martin and Brigette Wagner for the attention they have given to the Tops Market flower bed; the Elizabethtown-Lewis Chamber of Commerce for their continued dedication to the beautiful bridge baskets; to Mountain Lake Services who have made it a project to keep the bridge baskets watered; and Evelyn Hatch for keeping everything fertilized.
The Betty Brian Memorial garden in the front of town hall had been groomed and new plants added for some color. The town hall added the gorgeous planters last year, replanted them this year and added a picnic table to make it a more pleasant place for anyone to work or relax. The Elizabethtown-Westport Garden Club and friends for their planting of the Rosco Circle along with sponsoring the basket on the town hall handicap ramp.
I’m sure there are many other community gardeners that have helped, thank you to everyone.
Our town is looking great in the last two years, just like it should, since we are the Essex County Seat. There was no big plan, no formal beautification committee, just everyone working together to for a excellent gratifying purpose.
