MOULTONBOROUGH -- Applications for the town's 2013 Adopt A Spot program are now available.
Adopt A Spot participants prepare a planting plan for approval and plant and maintain the spot throughout the summer months into early fall. The participants all receive recognition with a nameplate at the spot and there is a judged award at the end of the season.
Last year nine local business, families, and service clubs beautified prominent public locations by adopting them. The spots were located throughout the community ranging from the town entry sign at Center Harbor to the larger scale Sutherland Park. All were given certificates of appreciation and the top three spots were given special plaques of recognition, after a judging by local gardeners. Interest in the program has grown to where the Town has begun to think about spots it might add to those which have been maintained to date.
Of the Adopt A Spot program, Selectmen Chairman Joel Mudgett said, "While we may disagree over some issues now and again there is one thing that all in Moultonborough agree on and demonstrate; the community minded volunteer spirit of our people. We can't thank our participants enough for their efforts in improving the quality of life in our community and hope they will have some additional company this year."
Applications may be obtained at the Town Offices or on line at www.moultonboroughnh.gov (Click on Paid, Volunteer and Contract Opportunities). Deadline for applications is 2 p.m. on April 15.
