Groton Beautification Daffodil Sale
The Groton Beautification Committee will hold its annual Daffodil Sale on October 15, 2022, from 9:30-12:30 at the Groton Senior Center. Residents will be able to access the daffodils from the drive through area. This will be a cash only sale. Residents may order ahead of time by calling Committee Member Nancy Codeanne at: 860-536-9253 to place orders ahead of the event if they choose. Purchasers may buy one dozen bulbs for $15 dollars and the profits will go towards projects the Beautification Committee is presently working on.
“The committee is continuing to focus on the gateway areas of the town and recently installed signage at the intersections of Route 117 with new color theme of blue background with white lettering indicating clearer direction arrows to Town Hall, Town Hall Annex, Police Station and the theme of “Explore More” which is a common welcoming introductory term for people to help navigate and acclimate people into Groton to what Groton has to offer.”
Another sign was recently installed on Route 117 to enhance that gateway along one of the main arteries into the center of town near the library. People entering from the I-95 ramp will pass this sign as well which has a similar coloring for unity and the theme of “Groton, Explore More.”
Projects planned or completed: flower gardens, shrubs, trees, artwork, murals, and sculptures. Many projects such as the Groton Public Library sculpture, Town Hall, Annex, Sutton Park, Police Station, top of Fort Hill Parklet garden plantings, Mystic John Kelly memorial plantings, Long Hill/Poquonnock Rd/Avery Memorial area plantings, Par Four entryway plantings have already added a unified and upgraded appearance to the town. Similar projects on the docket or in development – the daffodil bulb sale being the committee’s yearly fundraiser.
The daffodil sale is the committee’s yearly fundraiser to continue the Beautification’s mission of enhancing Groton’s landscape through plantings, artwork to improve residential, business, and overall community pride. The yellow color of the daffodil enhances any community landscape but is especially welcoming in the northern states such as Groton, Connecticut after a long winter.
“We hope this event will continue the community’s excitement to enhance the town’s landscape and living environment for our generations and future generations.”
