BEAUTIFICATION: 

Lorraine Simpson thanked the 12 volunteers who helped clean up the cul-de-sac at West Pine and Sarah.  She commented on the good work being done on the two median planters on Laclede and suggested a gift certificate to Dr. Michael Gerdine for continuing to provide water for the planter on Laclede at Boyle.

Postscript from Beautification Committee: 

We would like to thank all of the hard working volunteers who helped during this very difficult season. It seemed even more important for people to have a nice place to go and take a walk and get out of the house this year, so your help has been greatly appreciated. We hope we haven’t left out any volunteers! If your last name or group who helped isn’t there, it is because we didn’t have it, but wanted you acknowledged. Also, note that many of these volunteers contribute their time every year, not just 2020.
