Coshocton is Blooming spruces up Main Street

| November 21, 2013

COSHOCTON – Cold weather hasn’t stopped Coshocton is Blooming from being active.

Volunteers worked together to assemble baskets of greens to hang downtown and at the intersection of Chestnut and Second street. They also gathered bundles of greens and organized area businesses to help decorate the planters along Main Street.

“Last year we just did the baskets and the planters sat empty,” said Connie Miller from Coshocton is Blooming. “That just didn’t seem right because they have been a focal point (during other seasons) and are most noticeable.”

The greening of Main Street was organized by Miller and Kristy Leindecker and Deb Gaumer from the Garden Patch. Also instrumental in making the project happen were Bill and Carol Freund and Keith Eubanks from the Lawn Barber. The Freunds donated the evergreens used to fill the baskets and planters and Eubanks cut down the tree and hauled it to the fairgrounds for volunteers to gather greenery from.

“We couldn’t have done it without them,” Miller said.

Businesses that donated time to work on the Main Street planters included: The Coshocton County Beacon, the Coshocton Public Library, Good News Bookstore, Coshocton Tribune, Linnet’s Flowers on the Square, Mercantile on Main, Miller Funeral Home, Pomerene Center for the Arts, Sheree’s Salon & Spa and Wilson’s Carpet and Furniture.

“The nice thing about having a variety of people help is that the planters and baskets all turned out just a little bit different,” Miller said.
