LANSING, Ill. (May 25, 2018) – The sun was already warm by 7:00am when members of Lansing’s Beautification Committee gathered at the corner of Ridge and Burnham to plant flowers at the northeast entrance of the History Plaza. But with eight or nine volunteers digging, planting, arranging, raking, and sweeping, the work went fast.
The History Plaza is one of several sites the Beautification Committee is focusing their attention on this summer. They have also planted flowers in the pots along Ridge Road, and this coming week they hope to have all nine welcome signs beautified.
“This is a nice committee to be on,” said team leader Vivian Payne, “because you can immediately see the impact of your work.”
