Group takes care of flower boxes

10/14/10 (Thu)

The first thing travelers see as they turn off Highway 25 and enter Center are three variegated flower boxes with a sign above them displaying the words "Welcome To Center Oliver County."

Since May of this year a group of volunteers have been watering and maintaining these flower boxes. For summer the boxes contained pink, lavender and purple wave petunias, vinca vines, lobelia and wild flowers. Some lettuce and carrots were mixed in for accenting.
