Greater Meredith Program installs window boxes

MEREDITH — As part of their town-wide beautification effort the Greater Meredith Program has installed window boxes along Main St. While some stores already had boxes, the GMP noticed that some did not and offered to build them for the merchants if they would plant them with flowers and water them. Nine businesses took them up on the offer, Antiques at Meredith Bay, Family Affair, Hawkins Photography, Ruel's Barbershop, Park Place Salon, Patricia's Specially for You, Bootleggers Footwear, Lake Region Cupcakes, and Hermit Woods Winery.

The boxes were designed and built by Moe Gouin of Meredith and painted by Inter-Lakes Elementary students in Stephen Watson's class.
