Creswell Beautification Project calls for volunteers

Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 21 to help with the Second Annual Creswell Beautification Project. Last year, almost 200 volunteers worked together to help beautify downtown Creswell, and the goal is to have at least that many turn out this year. Can you help?
This year the confirmed projects and their leaders include:
*Improve the entryway of Creswell by the car wash and laundromat (Creswell Church of the Nazarene).
*Painting the ragged side of Los Cabos (Steve Derminer Painting and Jacko Plumbing).
*Painting the Grange (Steve Derminer Painting and Jacko Plumbing).
*Refurbishing the war memorial by the fire station (Creswell VFW).
*Trimming and removing blackberries (ODOT).
*Flower planting on Oregon Ave. (Cherie Teuscher).
*Flower planting in front of the “Welcome to Creswell” sign (Creswell Kiwanis).
*Trash cleanup on Highway 99 (Creswell Kiwanis).
In addition, the project has been granted $5,000 from the city tourism budget to purchase and install large planters filled with flowers along Oregon Avenue, but the planters may not arrive in time, so that part of the project may be completed at a later date.
Lunch will be provided for volunteers, courtesy of the Nazarene and LDS churches.
There will be a sign-in sheet front of City Hall on project day, but preregistration is strongly encouraged so that a head count for the lunches can be determined.
If you can help that day – or even better, join a committee – please contact Joseph Lewis at 541-974-8047.
