D: Adopt a Spot beautification project

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Board of Selectmen praised the participants in the town's program to beatify prominent public locations by having them adopted by local businesses and individuals, at their meeting on Sept. 6. During the fifth year of the program, eight businesses or service clubs and two families adopted 10 spots throughout the community, ranging from the Town entry sign at Center Harbor to the larger scale Sutherland Park.
All participants were given certificates of appreciation. In addition to the certificates, the top three spots were given special plaques of recognition, after a judging by local gardeners. First Place went to Miracle Farms for the entry sign at the Center Harbor Town line; Second Place went to Miracle Farms Landscaping for their work at the Public Safety Building, and Third Place went to Donnybrook Services for their work at the Community Center (Recreation-pole area).
Other participants included Karen and James Nigzus and Family at Playground Drive, Dion's Plant Place at the North Parking Island of Town Hall, the Moultonborough Women's Club at the South Parking Island of Town Hall, Pine Ridge Lawn & Landscape for the front of Town Hall, Moultonboro Toastmasters at the Transfer Station, the Moultonborough Lion's Club and Aubuchon Hardware at Sutherland Park, and Robert Patenaude for the Town Line at Bean Road.
Joel Mudgett, Chairman of the Moultonborough Selectmen said, "It is always a challenge to keep such volunteer efforts healthy and thriving. In this our fifth year, we can't thank these participants enough for their efforts in improving the quality of life in our community. We received many positive comments and the abundant color brought joy to many. It is our hope that each resident and visitor take an opportunity to say thank you to these participants as well." Applications for the 2013 program will be advertised
sometime in March of next year.
