HIGGS: Cheers for the Niagara Beautification Commission

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Individual members such as Linda and James Gibbons, Liz and Mike Brady and others select spots to create needed landscaping such as at Gluck Park and the Hyde Park Rose Garden. They also do the endless job of watering the large flower pots near the Statue of Liberty Park (another NBC project) at the Rainbow Bridge Entrance.

All of this is accomplished with funding in the amount of $5,000 from the city. No payroll, just insurance costs, some tools and plantings. Other project donors are the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission and the Seneca Gaming Corporation. Quite a bargain overall. Hip Hip Hooray for NBC!

Norma Higgs serves with the Niagara Beautification Commission and Niagara Falls Block Club Council.
