Members of the ?Palo Alto County Garden Club planted flowers in the downtown flower pots Tuesday morning. Sue Brown, Kay Kibbie and Bonnie Whitney are pictured (left to right) planting pink petunias in a pot in front of Val’s Body Shoppe on Broadway.
Downtown beautification is a project started by Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce several years ago. Pink petunias in each pot gives the area a unified appearance. Business owners in the central business district have planters and tend to the flowers during the summer. Spruce tips fill the pots during the winter.
