The Rainy River Future Development Corp. once again is seeking donors for “Project Petunia,” an initiative to beautify Fort Frances in the spring and summer months by hanging baskets of petunias along King’s Highway.
Baskets can be purchased by individuals, businesses, or community groups, and can be sponsored in memory of loved ones.
Sponsors will be recognized with an ad in the Fort Frances Times when the baskets are hung in mid-May.
The RRFDC has facilitated this beautification project since 2016.
“Project Petunia” is made possible thanks to sponsors from across Fort Frances and Rainy River District.
“This project really enhances the beauty of our town,” said RRFDC consultant Tannis Drysdale.
“Tourists driving into Fort Frances from the west frequently comment on what a nice touch the petunia baskets are on King’s Highway,” she noted.
Petunia baskets can be sponsored for $50 per basket.
Interested sponsors can contact Natasha Gaudio at the RRFDC (274-9621).
Donations can be made by cheque or cash, or online at www.rrfdc.on.ca/project-petunia
