North Tonawanda’s Project Pride to Host Annual Planting Event June 2-3

Project Pride of North Tonawanda has been very busy past few months. The organization recently held their first annual Disco Night fundraiser, to raise funds for future projects. Additionally, committed volunteers have helped clean up Downtown and Oliver Street. However, more work still needs to be done to accomplish our goals.

Beautifying the NT community with plantings and flowers is a key component to the mission of the organization. By beautifying NT, we are able to take a grassroots approach to improving neighborhoods and increasing neighborhood pride. For the second year in a row, the group has successfully obtained community sponsors to help defray the costs of filling planters on Oliver and Webster Streets. Sponsors will be recognized with a small sign on each planter. The City of North Tonawanda has supported our efforts and has provided fresh soil and watering services throughout the summer.

Volunteers are needed to assist with planting. Project Pride of North Tonawanda will be hosting a planting event on the following days:

  • Webster Street Planting: Saturday, June 2nd , 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM- Meet in front of Webster’s Bistro ( 102 Webster Street)
  • Oliver Street Planting: Sunday, June 3rd, 10:00 AM – Finish- Meet in front of Sherwood Florist ( 458 Oliver Street)

Supplies will be provided but we encourage volunteers to bring gloves, hand shovels, and watering cans. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Hughes at BHughes@Webstersnt.com  

Project Pride of North Tonawanda is a nonprofit citizen group whose mission it is to promote a sense of identity and pride among the residents of North Tonawanda, while attracting visitors to our community. Volunteers are a critical component to our success, so please join us in making NT beautiful. Stay up to date for future events by liking “NT Project Pride” on Facebook.
