Each year members of this committee focus on the maintenance of the many established perennial gardens located throughout the town. Some of the projects include the spring cleanup of the garden beds, the planting of colorful annual flowers, the watering and dead-heading of the plants during the summer months, and finally the fall cleanup of the gardens.
The committee meets with the Board of Selectmen yearly to discuss with potential future projects. In 2015 Committee members sought and received assistance from the Board of Selectmen for the purchase of new Welcome to Greenville signs which were installed in November. The welcome signs, purchased originally by the Beautification Committee 8 years ago, were in dire need of replacement due to age and delamination.
Also in 2015 the Beautification Committee resumed the organization and management of the annual Holiday Tree Lighting and the decorating of town hall. This event was originally started by the Committee and later assumed by the now defunct Holiday Committee.
In 2016 we are pleased to announce acceptance of a requested yearly town funded budget by the Board of Selectmen which approved at the spring at town meeting.
Annually letters of solicitation are also sent to area businesses seeking both monetary and in-kind donations.
The Beautification Committee always needs and welcomes new members. Like all volunteer committees, we need new members to help us thrive, grow and prosper. We welcome and appreciate for your feedback. We meet one to two times a month as needed March – December at the Chamberlin Library. Meeting dates will be posted on the web page.
