Quincy In Bloom

The Quincy Merchant’s Group has been working hard, studying the many options that we have to make Quincy a popular destination and a better place in which we live. We have studied numerous small mountain towns with lack-luster economies.

We have found that many of these towns have begun to turn their economies around by planting flowers. I’m sure that in your travels, you have all come across a town with colorful hanging baskets of flowers on the lamp posts, flowers in planter boxes in front of stores, restaurants and small parks in full bloom. If you were like me, you must have thought, “Gee, our town could look like that”. Or, perhaps there was a town that wasn’t on your itinerary as a place to stop, but once you saw the flowers, you did want to stop and stay around a while.

Now is the time to make Quincy one of those towns. Our goal is to have the big hanging flower baskets on the 24 green lamp posts down Main St. Gray’s Flower Garden has been very generous and has offered to donate all of the soil, fertilizer and a warm place for the flower baskets to grow until the weather is right. We have numerous volunteers that will plant the baskets, hang them and maintain them through out the season.

Its our community that will make this project happen. If you would like to see our town in full bloom, with a thriving economy, please sponsor a basket today. Each lamp pole requires a bracket, basket and flowers at the cost of $150.00 per lamp-post. This initial investment will bring beauty to our town for years to come. In the future it will only be the flowers that need to be replaced at a minimal cost. If you are able to sponsor a lamp-post, please leave a comment after this post.  Let us know how to get ahold of you. Your information will not be shared. Or message Julie Hatzell or Emily Webb on facebook.

      So sorry I didn’t get this until today. We have all the baskets for this year. Thank you so much for your interest. Next year, we may add to the project and will keep you in mind. Also, there is ample opportunity to be involved in this years project by signing up to water during the summer.

  2. Right here is the right web site for anyone who wishes to understand this
    topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).
