Greenville Beautification Day
Main Street Greenville...
On May 19, nearly 100 people from businesses, organizations and
families came to beautify downtown. With the early morning start,
volunteers from BASF and Boy Scout Troop #373 assisted with the
unloading and spreading of mulch and planting Annie Oakley Park. From
8:00am until 11:00am on Saturday morning people gathered in the
downtown to plant their adopted box organized by the Main Street
Greenville’s Design Committee.
If you are in downtown this summer, check out the colorful additions to
the downtown along with the rows of street poles recognizing the
Adopt-A-Box participants. Children, parents, grandparents,
co-workers, and friends all took part in the planting of the vibrant
colors along South Broadway. “This program was designed to reach out
and involve the community and to have an appreciation for downtown
Greenville,” stated Mike Henderson, Main Street Greenville Design
Chair. Throughout the summer the participants will be maintaining
their box or pot while helpful hands of more community volunteers water
This year’s program recognizes BASF, Miller Flowers, Spencer’s
Landscaping, Fresh Air Farms, Wayne Industries and City of Greenville
Street Department for contributing time, materials and or monetary
donation towards this community project.
