Adopt A Pot and help keep LakeTown Landing beautiful!
The Moses Lake Business Association (MLBA) is requesting your support in adopting flower pots in LakeTown Landing.
The history of the flower pots in our downtown dates back to 2007 when 60 medium and 8 large planters were purchased by MLBA and placed, at this time the pots were planted, water, fertilized and cleaned by volunteers. Also included are the planter boxes at the end of Ash St., Cedar St. and below the Monte Holm mural and around the Rotary clock.
In 2008 70 additional pots were purchased and in 2009 the Moses Lake High School students got involved in the project. The students grow, plant and remove the plants at the end of the season. MLBA continues this partnership with the FFA students and now hires someone to water all the pots on a daily basis.
The Moses Lake Business Association would like to partner with the community to keep the flower pots in LakeTown Landing full of beautiful flowers. For only $100 you or your business or group can Adopt A Pot for the 2012 growing season. This cost covers the costs of preparing the pots, the plants for the pots, planting, watering and maintenance for the entire 2012 growing season. To thank you for your support MLBA will place an engraved plaque on a pot, as well as recognize you in their monthly newsletter, on their website (www.mlbacares.org) and on their Facebook page(s). You can Adopt A Pot by contacting the MLBA office at 764-1745 or go to their website and pay via PayPal or credit card.
Marianne Kirwan, Executive Director of the Moses Lake Business Association says, “The LakeTown Landing Flower Pot Project really beautifies our downtown shopping core. The MLHS FFA students will begin preparing for planting soon and the flowers which they have been growing will be planted before Memorial Day in time for Moses Lake Spring Festival. In a recent survey the overwhelming response from both the public and the merchants is that they increase the curb appeal of LakeTown Landing and they like having them. With you support we can keep this fantastic project in our downtown.”
Candi Jaeger, MLBA President, says, “I love to drive down Third Avenue when the flowers are in bloom and the banners are flying. It makes all the hard work that MLBA and the community members do worth it. I will personally be adopting a pot and I invite others to do so too!”
MLBA’s goal is to improve the economic development of the Moses Lake business community through organization, promotion, design, and economic restructuring. We are here to support our downtown shopping district, LakeTown Landing. With gas prices on the rise let’s figure out how we can encourage our residents to Shop Moses Lake First!
The Moses Lake Business Association (MLBA) is a non-profit organization formed in 1993 by interested Moses Lake citizens.
