Every year, part of Springville’s Main Street is decked out with hanging baskets. Before another season ends, I would like to publicly acknowledge those who, past and present, have contributed to the beautification of our village via this project.
The village of Springville for physically hanging and removing the baskets, Zahm & Matson for donating use of the tractor and trailer every year, United Methodist Church for space and water accommodations in the past, Waterman’s Greenhouse for producing such beautiful flowering gems to purchase, Ethan Waterman for housing the tractor and trailer and supplying water in the recent past, The town of Concord for currently supplying the water, Dave Batterson for giving the tractor and trailer a new home, Tyler Moody for working diligently for us Monday through Saturday watering and especially Grover Riefler for watering the hanging baskets every Sunday morning.
Without hesitation, he voluntarily “stepped up to the plate” and committed every Sunday morning to this project to keep it and the flowers alive. The collaborative efforts of all involved in this project deserve our thanks, and we look forward to next year’s color-filled beautification. The next time you see a volunteer, be sure to thank him or her—better yet, become one.
