After what has seemed like an endless winter, we’re finally starting to see the first signs of spring emerging. As the last of the snow disappears and flowers begin to bloom, we hope that you’ll take the opportunity to recognize neighbors during the spring edition of “Beautify Beacon Hill.”
The Beacon Hill Civic Association, the Beacon Hill Garden Club, and The Beacon Hill Times are hosting the next installment of the “Beautify Beacon Hill Awards.” As you walk around our neighborhood, be sure to take pictures of the prettiest plantings that you see. Then submit photos and addresses of outstanding neighborhood window boxes, tree pits, front-yard gardens, and containers to [email protected].
Submissions will be accepted by the Civic Association until May 28th. All submissions will then be judged by the Garden Club. The Beacon Hill Times, the program’s media sponsors, will publish photos of the winning entries in June.In September, the award winners from January and June will be honored at the annual Beacon Hill Block Party.
“We’re trying to get people to decorate throughout the year,” said MaryLee Halpin, executive director of the Civic Association. “Our hope is that by publicizing what people have done to decorate in the different seasons will inspire others to enhance their areas, and for this all to help make Beacon Hill prettier than it already is.”
