Plan: More flowers, banners this year
Fairmont, from Interstate 90 down State Street, along South State Street and Albion Avenue to Gomsrud Park, down Blue Earth Avenue and Lake Avenue to Heritage Acres.“We get so many visitors to Fairmont for things like school events,” she said. “I’m excited to think about all those people and their reactions.”She mentioned a letter to the editor that appeared in the Sentinel last year. A woman praised the colorful addition of the flower baskets and banners although she wasn’t aware of the group that was responsible for them.“That was so cool, that somebody enjoyed what we did. That’s the treat after the hard work,” Hawkins said. “We’re all volunteers. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s a lot of fun. There’s a great amount of joy in driving down the street and knowing we were a part of that.”The letter writer’s opinion is shared by other residents and business owners in the community. All business owners along the potential flower route gladly gave donations, with the exception of one individual. Hawkins specifically mentioned the board of directors at the Red Rock Center, a location that in previous years sported a basket and banner from a nearby pole. Because the center is a non-profit organization, the board was unable to make a donation to the program, but that did not prevent the individual board members from reaching in their wallets to make personal donations.“They enjoyed the flowers so much, they all pitched in out of their own pockets. That was really a neat thing,” she said.Flowers for a basket or a banner cost $75 each, and some individuals and businesses have donated enough to finance one or more of the items.“But we’ll accept any amount. The more money we get, the more banners and flowers we’ll get. If we get more, we’re just going to keep going,” Hawkins said.Donations can be dropped off at City Hall or sent to City of Fairmont/Focus on Fairmont, 100 Downtown Plaza, Fairmont, MN 56031. Please write “flowers/banners” on the memo line on checks.For more information, contact Hawkins at (507) 399-1682 or email her at email@example.com -- ... (Fairmont Sentinel)May 18, 2016
