The Grosse Pointe Woods Beautification Advisory Commission held its 29th annual flower sale on May 7 and 8. We would like to thank the Woods residents, as well as the residents of our surrounding communities, who supported this sale by purchasing the colorful flowers, commemorative tiles and concrete "critters" that were on display.
We would also like to thank our council members and Grosse Pointe Woods Department of Public Works (DPW) employees who assisted us with this event.
As you may know, our only revenue-generating fundraisers of the year are the annual flower sale and our continuing sales of the city mugs, tiles and custom-designed garden stepping stones (available at the Grosse Pointe Woods Community Center and DPW).
We use any donations we receive, as well as the profits from the ventures mentioned above, to pay for the flowers planted on the Mack Avenue medians, at the parks and in other public areas throughout the city.
The Beautification Advisory Commission (BAC) also funds special projects during the year.
The BAC also worked at Lakefront Park on Saturday, May 15, to clean up the perennial flower beds near our boardwalk. We would like to thank the residents of the city who volunteered to help, as well as the Grosse Pointe Woods Parks & Recreation employees.
