Volunteers Spruce Up Cambria

This week's Courier has a nice article by Wayne Utterback on efforts to spruce up Cambria as part of the 3rd Annual "Beautify Cambria" event that took place last Wednesday.
Jennifer Sherry, who has been planting flowers in Cambria for more than five years, said the event was something that she saw as necessary.

"It was something that I really felt was needed and important for the village," Sherry said. "I always liked plants and I think it's neat to share the green thumb with the community.

Besides Sherry a number of volunteers helped to plant the flowers in the area of the village hall, post office and bank.

A $250 grant from the village government along with private donations helped pay for the flowers.

A second part of the beautifying effort will take place tomorrow morning. The village's annual Roadside Trash Pick Up starts at 8 a.m. June 9.

Way to go Cambria.
