Every year, members of the local garden club, Gardeners on the Green, request donations from Longmeadow residents, friends, and businesses to support the Longmeadow Beautification Fund.
This fund was established many years ago by several dedicated Longmeadow residents who wanted to assist the Longmeadow Parks & Recreation Department in maintaining and improving the appearance of several public sites in town.
Donations are used to purchase flowers, shrubs and trees; fund routine care of ornamental trees; maintain watering systems at most locations; and hire an intern to carry out watering and weeding throughout the summer.
While the Longmeadow Parks & Recreation Department administers the fund, Gardeners on the Green members provide volunteer labor to keep the following sites looking fresh and colorful:
LONGMEADOW COMMUNITY HOUSE ENTRANCE AND GROUNDS
WAR MEMORIAL ON THE GREEN
BLINN TENNIS COURTS
Donations in any amount are appreciated or at the following levels:
$15 $25 $50 $100 and above
Please indicate on your check if you would like to contribute in honor or memory of an individual or group.
Make your tax-deductible donation payable to Longmeadow Beautification Fund and mail your check to the Longmeadow Parks and Recreation Department.
