Patoka 2000, the beautification committee of the Jasper Chamber of Commerce, will soon plant Fall mums in new urns that outline the bridge area.
This committee works to maintain this area as an entryway into the City of Jasper. The planters are spruced up with live flowers three times per year. Because live plants are used, they must be watered regularly. The volunteers who have been watering the planters throughout the summer this year are: Drew Englert, Jane Balsmeyer, Linda Giesler,Lou Collins, Nancy Eckerle, and Judi Brown. Jon and Miriam Eckerle have spent many hours keeping the landscaped area near the railroad tracks looking good.
In order to defray the costs of this beautification, Patoka 2000 seeks donations from individuals or businesses throughout the community. You may make a donation in any amount (payable to Patoka 2000) and specify that it is in honor of someone, in memory of someone, or as a tribute to a cause.
