Project Pride to host planting event

Fri, Jun 2nd 2017 02:40 pm
Over the past few months, members of Project Pride of North Tonawanda have helped clean up the grounds of the Carnegie Arts Center, Oliver Street, Webster Street, Manhattan Street and a vacant parcel of land at Tremont and Oliver streets.
 
Beautifying the NT community with plantings and flowers is a key component to the mission of the organization. By beautifying NT, volunteers are able to take a grassroots approach to improving neighborhoods and increasing neighborhood pride. The group has successfully obtained 50 community sponsors to help defray the costs of filling planters on Oliver and Webster streets. Sponsors will be recognized with a small sign on each planter.
 
The City of North Tonawanda has supported the members' efforts by providing fresh soil and watering services throughout the summer.
 
Volunteers are needed to assist with planting.
 
Project Pride of North Tonawanda will also be hosting a planting event on the following days at the utility shed on Manhattan Street (near Goundry Street): The event will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 3; 10 a.m. Sunday, June 4; and 5:30 p.m. Monday, June 5.
 
Supplies will be provided, however volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves, hand shovels and watering cans.
