[MONTICELLO] – Community volunteers are being sought to help plant 8000 daffodil bulbs on Broadway in Monticello on Saturday, October 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Symbolizing rebirth and new beginnings, the daffodils will emerge next spring as a symbol of Monticello’s future prosperity.
Community groups, non-profit organizations, houses of worship, individuals and businesses are invited to “adopt” one of 36 planting beds along Broadway. Sullivan Renaissance will assign each interested party a planting bed, and provide the bulbs and planting instructions. All that volunteers are asked to bring are a gardening trowel or shovel and some gloves.
“We are also encouraging residents in Monticello to purchase their own daffodil bulbs and plant them in their yards this fall,” explained Sullivan Renaissance Community Planner Helen Budrock. “Operation Daffodil is not just about planting flowers. It is about building community spirit and celebrating Monticello’s new beginnings.”
Operation Daffodil is a collaboration among Sullivan Renaissance, Monticello Beautification Group, Monticello Business Association and the Village of Monticello. Corporate sponsors include the Spencer Daniels Agency and Yellow Cab.
To participate, contact 845-295-2445 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The rain date is Sunday, October 16.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by U.S. Representative Maurice D. Hinchey. Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation and WSUL/WVOS.
