Ironton In Bloom has many goals

Published 10:15am Friday, January 3, 2014

Even a little snow on the ground won’t stop Ironton In Bloom from planning its upcoming green season.

Since its inception, Ironton In Bloom has worked to beautify the city with its hanging flower baskets and large containers and a variety of contests to get the community involved in showing pride in the area.

And each year, more and more people show their support for the growing organization.

For Ironton In Bloom 2013 was a busy year. In addition to its usual work it joined the vendors at Ironton’s Farmers Market by having several special festivals, organized a community garden and planted a native garden at the St. Mary’s Medical Center Ironton Campus.

As the organizations looks ahead to the months to come, community support is still needed more than ever to keep the momentum going.

Spring will be here before we know it and Ironton In Bloom will be sending out its commitment letters requesting donations and container sponsorships.

If you are not able to donate money to the organization, we encourage you to donate a few hours of your time to help with plantings around the city or at your own home.

It only takes a little color to make the community come alive and makes all the difference for people who drive through the city.

We hope the community continues to support the efforts to make Ironton a more beautiful place to live.
