For many years The Marion Garden Group has been planting and tending window boxes, planters, and urns throughout Marion Village in an effort to beautify the village.
Building on that mission, Liz Hatch, newly elected Vice President, along with a dedicated group of volunteers is heading up a new initiative – beginning with beautification of the gateways to Marion.
“I was inspired by the efforts communities such as Tiverton RI, Osterville and Chatham MA have made to beautify the road islands and entrance areas and what a difference it made to their towns. I think the same effort here could be transformative for Marion,” She says.
Plans are underway to install a new Marion sign on the corner of Route 6 and Front Street as well as plant (and care for) areas leading into Marion along Route 6 as well as areas along Route 105.
Although donations are already being received, the official fundraising for this effort will be kicked off on Thursday,July 26with a fundraiser held at the Hatches beautiful seaside home in Marion. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Tickets are $40 (though additional donations will be gladly accepted).
