PELHAM, N.Y. The Pelville Beautification Committee is asking for people from the area to sponsor hanging flowers baskets, which are displayed from spring through fall and show the pride that the residents take in our village, the groups flyer said.
While the Village of Pelham has usually been able to help fund the project, it is unable to this year because of the tight budget and the committee is urging residents to pay $25 for the Fifth Avenue baskets.
The committee is a part of the Pelville Association, a not-for-profit organization, and members must raise the money for each of their projects.
We need your help to fund this years hanging baskets, the flyer said. Your support will directly contribute to the continuation of the annual hanging basket program in our village.
Sponsors can use the baskets as a gift for birthdays, anniversaries, a thank you, or to honor someone who has passed away, the committee said. The sponsor would have his or her name placed on the pole in which the basket is being hung from.
The hanging flower baskets must be sponsored by Friday, April 20.
