Can you ‘dig this’ beautification project?

To the Editor:
The volunteers that gave their time and energy for a successful “Can You Dig This” beautification project were great! This past Saturday morning the volunteers re-did the planters downtown on Elk Ave. The project was organized and lead by the Downtown Beautification Committee which partnered with Keep Carter County Beautiful (KCCB), The City of Elizabethton Main Street Director and Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Director and Keep Tennessee Beautiful (KTnB). KTnB provided all the flowers, bulbs, topsoil and trees that were/will be planted, in the planter boxes and later on the Tweetsie Trail.
The planter boxes were first cleaned before the volunteers planted 120 Black Eyed Susans and 240 Daffodil Bulbs. At a later date the Downtown Beautification Committee will plant 240 Iris Bulbs along the Tweetsie Trail, place and date to be announced. In November three Red Bud Trees will be planted, details to follow. We had a fantastic group of determined hard working volunteers, who once again got the job done. Thank you to all!
