Adopt-A-Spot: One Adopt-A-Spot has been taken. It is
Spot #3 the Novak flower bed located at the back door of the Municipal Offices.
The Beautification Committee completed the form to adopt the Municipal Offices
front flower bed. The Senior Center requested that Spot #25 be added as their
flower bed and we need to add Spot #26 at the Municipal Offices in the Building
Dept. Wing. Marilyn agreed to take pictures of both new spots and add to folder.
Get-A-Tree Day: 150 trees were given out.
Bird, Bat & Butterfly Contest: There were a total of
10 houses entered into this year’s contest. All ten houses were of the bird or
butterfly type. There were not any bat houses. Prizes were awarded for 1st
($25), 2nd ($15), & 3rd ($15) places. The decision as to where to display the
wining houses has yet to be determined. Next year’s advertisement should state,
"Open to Chesterfield residents only" and age categories should be as follows:
3-7, 8-12, & 12-Adult.
Maintenance Update: A Municipal Offices plant map was
created by Denise at Rich’s request. Marilyn weeded the "Welcome to
Chesterfield" sign located in front of Brandenburg Park. Committee members and
Adopt-A-Spot participants will have their names posted at Brandenburg Park for
both the booth workers and Mark’s to waive park entry fees when work is being
done. For all ohter spots not yet adopted, Beautification Committee members will
be overlooking & cleaning until they are adopted.
Marilyn: Would like winners of all contests and
announcements to be displayed in the bulletin board at the municipal offices
located nearest to the Parks & recreation entrance.
Sue: Will be contacting Amanda to create a Pumpkin
Carving Contest flyer for the September meeting.
The Beautification Committee thanked Rich and his
staff for having the Pumpkin Carving Contest advertised in the Roots brochure
and for having an advertisement placed on Comcast Channel 6 & 12 for the
Adopt-A-Spot as well as for volunteers.
