At the annual Village Planting Day on May 19th, Village officials gathered together with residents and their families to plant flowers not only at the Grand Avenue bridge but also at Village Hall and our Veterans Memorials in front of the Police Station. Spearheaded by local residents Patsy Aller and Brent Leder, Planting Day is an annual event that brings together volunteers to add beautiful color to some of the focal points of our town.
"Thank you to the Beautification Committee and our Public Works department for keeping this 30-year tradition in place," said Mayor Dave Guerin. "But most importantly, let's give a big thanks to the resident volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning to make our beautiful town even more lovely. They are true Grovers. One of my favorite pastimes in the summer is strolling down our tree-lined streets and looking at all the beautiful flowers in front of people's homes. It feels like each year, neighbors out-do each other as their yards look better and better. I am looking forward to the Beautification Committee hosting their Trolley Garden Walk on July 22nd in conjunction with the return of River Front Fest."
Sponsored by the Beautification Committee, Planting Day is held each year in May. Pictures of this year's Planting Day can be found at our Beautification Committee webpage.
