COSHOCTON – Bill Hahn, a judge for America in Bloom, speaks during a symposium co-sponsored by Clary Gardens and Coshocton is Blooming, about ideas on how to improve the community landscaping. “Don’t fear change when change is good,” he said. “When you know what’s right, forge forward and do it. Don’t be intimidated by the project before you.” This is the first symposium that Coshocton is Blooming has held with a goal of reviewing each score previously given by the judges in each of the six categories and looking at how each category can be improved. “This is to bring awareness to the community on what Coshocton is Blooming is really all about,” said Jandi Adams, director of Clary Gardens. “We’re not having judges in this year because we decided to work on the areas that need improvement and really wow the judges.” Coshocton has participated in America in Bloom since 2009. “We want to look at where we’ve been in each category and how we’re starting to address these,” said Dorothy Skowrunski. “This is kind of the kick-off for regrouping and where we need to go. We want to educate our community, city council, and the mayor in what we want to start doing.” Last week, the mayor and the tree commission went to Columbus and Coshocton was named a Tree City USA.
