Flower Basket Planting 2018

Flower Basket Planting is Just Around the Corner

In the midst of winter, it’s time to start planning for spring! In March, we’ll be planting the flower baskets that hang throughout the neighborhood all summer long.  Can you help? We need lots of neighbors to help plant the baskets—which we plant in the warm cozy greenhouses of Indian Creek Nursery, 303 Saddle Creek Road.

We’ll be planting this year on Friday March 23 and Saturday March 24.  Planting times are 10-3 each day, and a lunch for volunteers is provided. No gardening experience required! This is a great way to make new friends, catch up with old friends, and beautify the neighborhood.

To volunteer for one or both days, sign up online at HERE, or e-mail Mary Green at megreen4@cox.net, or leave a message at 402-556-1830.  You can also sign up at the monthly DMPA meetings.  

Also, we’re looking for someone to help with coordinating the planting project this year, with the idea of taking over the organizing for 2019.  This is a fun project to organize!  If you can help, contact Mary at the phone or e-mail above. 

Thanks for helping,

Mary Green, Flower Basket Chair

Boyscout Troop 42 Celebrates 100th Birthday

Boy Scout Troop 42 will celebrate its 100 th birthday the weekend of July 7, and

we’re inviting past members and adult leaders as well as the Dundee community

to mark the occasion with us.

 

The troop will kick off the weekend with a reception and Eagle Scout reunion

Friday, July 7 at Dundee Bank, 5015 Underwood Ave., to unveil the updated

Eagle plaque listing all of the troop’s Eagle Scouts. The names of all recent

Eagle Scouts have been added to the plaque, which is graciously hosted by the

bank. Previous Troop 42 Eagle Scouts also are invited to attend the 7 p.m.

reception.

 

On July 8, the troop will hold a Centennial Block Party outside Dundee

Presbyterian Church, its longtime sponsor and supporter. The block party will

include a summer Court of Honor, preparation of a time capsule, skits and a

presentation of Troop 42’s 100 years of history as well as a few other surprises.

The troop also is raising funds to repair and wrap the troop trailer with a new

banner to commemorate its 100 years. Donations can be sent to Dundee

Presbyterian Church, 5312 Underwood Ave., attention Marc Anderson, Scout

Master.

 

Most importantly, Troop 42 wishes to thank the Dundee community for

supporting scouting in Dundee for 100 years. From leaving food on your porches

for Scouting for Food and purchasing popcorn and holiday greens to visiting our

booth at the Dundee Day Parade, we appreciate it all. The troop, in turn,

continues to do its best to serve the community through service projects including

planting trees, cleaning up Memorial Park after the annual Bank of the West

Celebrates America concert and hauling ballot boxes at the Douglas County

Election Commission.

Troop 42 is proud to have enjoyed 100 years of scouting in Dundee.

Flower Basket Planting: Call for Volunteers

Before last year’s flower baskets become a distant memory, it’s time to start planning for this summer’s baskets. We’ll need the help of many neighbors to get them planted in March!

Our annual flower basket planting event takes place on Friday and Saturday, March 24th and 25th, at Indian Creek Nursery (303 N. Saddle Creek Road.)

Indian Creek Nursery will care for the baskets through the spring.  In May, the beautiful baskets will be hung on the historic Dundee street lights, spreading the unique charm that says Dundee all through the neighborhood.

Planting starts at 10 a.m. and lasts until about 3 p.m., with a mid-day break for a delicious lunch donated by neighborhood restaurants. No gardening experience required! This is a great way to beautify the neighborhood, make new friends, and catch up with old friends.

To volunteer for one or both days, sign up online here, or e-mail Mary Green at megreen4@cox.net, or leave a message at 402-556-1830.
