Chamber of Commerce asks for help toward downtown flower baskets

The flower baskets in downtown Quincy are coming back for the summer 2019 — with the community’s help. The Quincy Chamber of Commerce needs to raise $6,000 by Saturday, May 11, to purchase and care for 26 flower baskets that hang from the lamp posts during the summer months.

Donations in any amount are appreciated. A donation of $300 sponsors a basket for the entire summer.

The impact of this gift will be a more beautiful downtown, a positive effect on the local economy and one part-time job.

The Quincy CofC is partnering with Plumas Arts to sponsor flower baskets this year, in conjunction with the original grass root volunteers. Valerie Flanigan, who treats those flowers like they are her children, has kindly offered to care for the flowers all summer long.

Tax-deductible donations made out to Plumas Arts can be taken to Quincy Provisions, Plumas Arts, Forest Stationers, The Toy Store, The Drunk Brush, or Emily’s Garden.

Those who choose to sponsor one basket for the whole summer will have a plaque under a flower basket recognizing their gift. In the past, several organizations and businesses have chosen that option along with families who want to recognize a loved one. For example: A family honoring a new grandchild, or loved one honoring a life.

The hanging flower baskets are only possible with community financial and volunteer support. For more information or volunteering opportunities, contact Shelley Hunter of Quincy Feather Bed Inn, 283-3000, or email [email protected].
