The WCPP grant was used to fund the planting of 13 new trees and a new landscape bed to the border of North Ave. and Cherry Street. This will provide a much needed privacy screen and beautification to our cemetery. This area is virtually barren with no borders, privacy, or plantings. We're hoping this initiative will kick-start other needed improvements along North Avenue and around the community. Bedwell Gardens planted all of the trees, tore down the existing border and built a new, fresh one. We can't wait to see what springtime will bring when the Lions Club plants colorful annuals in our border. Pictured below is the project in various stages, as well as members of the Hometown Pride committee receiving their check from the Warren County Philanthropic Partnership. Hometown Pride will share more photos when the project is completed.
