Village of Tangipahoa Volunteers Completes Landscaping Project
The Village of Tangipahoa received a new face lift just in time for the holiday season.
Tangipahoa resident Randy Nelson wanted to make a different in the town. He and Terry Martin trimmed trees along Hwy 51 to provide a better view, he said.
“The ball begins to roll when other volunteers join in to help make a difference in the town,” said Nelson. “We’re very thankful to our loyal businesses who donated the necessary material for the completion of the landscaping project.”
The bricks were donated by Kentwood Brick, Kentwood, Leroy Garrett and Perino’s Garden Center, New Orleans, donated the mums. Hedge bushes, flower bushes were donated by Brumfield’s Nursery of Folsom, and Kentwood Hardware donated paint to brighten up the tables throughout the park.
Tangipahoa Mayor Brenda Nevels and staff said they are elated with the great job the volunteers did to beautify the town and make a difference.
The volunteers also inspired the community to come together and get involved in preparing for the Christmas holidays by donating Christmas lights and flags to assist in the downtown decoration.
This year’s Christmas Theme is “Christmas in the Village” and the annual Christmas parade will be December 14, at noon. For information, call the Dorothy Lewis at the City Hall, (985) 229-8300 M-F 3pm-5pm.
