Flowers: A nearly 140-year-old tradition in Riverside
CONTRIBUTING PHOTOGRAPHERRelated article » The Riverside Community Flower Show and Garden Tour, held on April 8 and 9 this year at the Elks Club on Brockton Avenue, continues Riverside’s tradition of flower and garden shows dating back almost 140 years.When settlers first came to the high plain above the Santa Ana River in 1870 to found the colony that would become Riverside, they discovered that with a little water, a lot of beautiful plants would grow. Very soon after, they began to celebrate that fact with shows, including a chrysanthemum show beginning in 1878 and a rose show starting in 1890.As with many things of a cultural nature in the growing city, the Riverside Women’s Club, founded in 1896, was an early sponsor of flower and garden shows. In 1929 it held their first flower show at the women’s clubhouse. It was so popular that two years later it was moved to the larger Municipal Auditorium.Soon, the City Beautification Committee of the Chamber of Commerce was asked to manage what had become a grand Main Street parade, a garden show with music and dancing, and the very popular private garden contest.In 1936 a group of garden enthusiasts formed the Riverside Garden Club. Lorraine Small was part of the new group. Many may remember her from her popular “Small Talk” garden columns in The Press-Enterprise, which she wrote for 40 years.The city con...

Brockton mayor bills taxpayers for flowers bought at city councilor's business
Brockton Mayor Bill Carpenter signed off on a $2,300 purchase earlier this year using taxpayer money to buy flowers from City Councilor Shirley Asack. Carpenter admitted that buying the flowers with city money is in a "gray" legal area. But other members of Brockton City Council believe it is obviously against the law.

BROCKTON – Nearly 30 flower baskets popped up last fiscal year at Brockton funerals and, in one case, at the desk of a City Hall employee, with cards noting that they were from Mayor Bill Carpenter.
But those flowers weren’t bought by the mayor. They were paid for by the taxpayers of Brockton.
Carpenter signed off on a $2,300 purchase using taxpayer money to buy flowers from a fellow elected official who serves on the Brockton City Council, according to public records. The city purchase order filed in June, and later amended to $2,225, shows that the money went to Posh Flowers and Gifts, which is owned by Brockton Wa... (Enterprise News)Sep 21, 2016
Brockton's Supreme pizza shop to reopen Friday
BROCKTON - After laying their patriarch to rest earlier this week, the family members of James "Jimmy" Lambrakis are ready to carry on the job of the beloved Brockton pizza shop owner.
Lambrakis, 65, a resident of Easton and owner of Supreme House of Pizza in Brockton, died Aug. 30 of a heart attack while on vacation in Greece.
He was laid to rest Monday in Melrose Cemetery in the city, following a funeral service held in the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.
The business, at the corner of Centre and Cary streets on Brockton's east side, has been closed since Lambrakis' death.
Earlier this week, his son, Manny Lambrakis announced they would be reopening on Friday.
"My family and I wanted to say thank you to all our friends and family who came and paid their respects to my dad. We really feel like our customers are like family!" he posted on his Facebook page on Monday. "We have some cleaning to do at Supreme, and some prepping but we plan on reopening Friday."
Jimmy has owned the pop... (Enterprise News)Jun 22, 2016
New Brockton is bloomin'
If you drive on Main Street in New Brockton, you can see some blooms coming out on a few of the street's corners.
The town's beautification committee has been working on planting flowers in four corner spots on Main Street. Three have been completed, while work is continuing on the fourth.
"(We planted flowers) to show the pride in the town and to be pleasing to other people that drive by," committee member Kathy Holley said. "(We did it) to make it nice, even for the walkers in the evening now that it's gotten so hot."
The corners showcase a variety of flowers and plants, including marigolds, topiaries, encore azaleas, potato vines and more.
Each area has also been fitted with a solar light. Holley said the lights, which were bought with the help of the Revitalization Committee, were a more economical choice of lighting for the areas.
