The Marion Beautification Initiative, made up of members from the Marion Garden Group, is excited to finally have the new reader board installed at the corner of Route 6 and 105. With their mission statement, “To identify and improve strategic public areas within Marion by enhancing them with gardens and landscaping”, the group has used donated funds to target specific town owned areas throughout the town to add additional beautiful landscaping.
This year they used funds from their summer fundraiser to donate a new town reader board sign to the town and upgrade the landscaping on the corner. With the help of the town, the group is working to make sure the projects they initiate are being properly maintained and watered.
Since forming this group in 2018, the group has already landscaped four larger areas and added large planters to key areas around town. They are hoping to raise additional funds to continue landscaping sustainable areas around town.
Anyone interested in financially supporting the Marion Beatification Initiative can send donations to the Marion Garden Group, PO Box 403, Marion, MA 02738. Please note Beautification in the memo section. The MGG is a 501 3c organization.
