This year the Hawthorne Lions Club purchased Boxwoods in hope of having year round greenery in the downtown planters. Compost has been added to all the planters to encourage plant growth. Anyone interested in adopting a planter for adding flowers please call Tammy Bunch or Jean Peterson.

As the Victory Garden Club has watered the planters over the years volunteers have noted which flowers shine best during the summer. Vincas have stood out as adding color throughout the season with the least amount of maintenance. Therefore volunteers are encouraged to plant this resilient flower to add color to the planters.

This year two trees in planters were vandalized. We would hope that the community would take pride in the effort. Please use the garbage containers rather than the planters for trash.
