08/27/2008: "Beautiful Flowers the Result of Hard Work"


To the Editor:

Although it felt a little "Fall-ish" as I drove into work this morning, the beautiful hanging baskets that have lined our streets all summer long quickly pulled me back into a summer state of mind! I have had locals and visitors alike comment to me about the colorful baskets and what a welcoming gesture they extend.

I want to thank the Town of Friday Harbor for providing these flower baskets. And I especially want to thank Sharon Hammel who is responsible for the Town's green spaces. Did you know that Sharon works from about 4:30am- 12:30pm watering and feeding over 100 hanging baskets? She also waters the plants in most of the tree wells (those not adopted through the Chamber's "Adopt a Tree Well" program), plus she maintains all of the Town benches - and there are over 100 of those, too!

The mass of color these baskets add to our streetscape certainly make the Town a welcoming place to live, work and visit.
