Old Town Hanging Flower Basket Fundraiser

Who: Old Towne Reedsport Merchant Association

What: 2015 Hanging Flower Baskets

Where: Old Towne Reedsport

When: End of April 2015

How Many Baskets: 40

Funds Needed: $2,400.

It is our pleasure to announce that starting in 2015, Pass Creek Nursery in Drain, Oregon will be supplying our hanging baskets for the downtown Reedsport area. There have been uncounted praises for the baskets we have supplied for downtown over the years but we have also been asked why we couldn’t have bigger baskets, sooner. We were listening. Bigger baskets mean starting them in a greenhouse early—like January. So we talked to Pass Creek and they have agreed to supply us with the baskets we would like to display downtown. We are so excited!

Another development that affects our efforts to place hanging baskets on the light poles downtown is the creation of the Main Street Program and the Banner project. Because the Main Street Design Committee wants to place decorative banners on the poles downtown too, OTRMA decided to share the light poles with them. OTRMA will have every other pole with hanging baskets and Main Street will have the remainder with the banners. Downtown Reedsport is going to look even more fantastic!

Because we only raise funds for the flower baskets once a year, we would like to ask your help in raising the funds we need. Please consider donating to the Hanging Flower Basket Project. The only reason we have reached our 8th year on this community eautification project is the people of Reedsport care about what downtown Reedsport looks like. It is so important for the image of our city. People remember the baskets long after they are taken down in fall. As the cycle of the seasons progress, winter arrives and walks us into spring. Then, once again, we find ourselves dreaming of summer and beautiful flowers!

Please make your much appreciated donation check payable to OTRMA and mail to PO BOX 543, Reedsport, Oregon 97467. We appreciate your donation, but most of all we appreciate your willingness to partner with us to continue to be successful in our endeavors to keep Reedsport beautiful!
