Main Street beautification
By SUE WATSON
Workers with the city of Holly Springs joined master gardeners and other volunteers to install landscaping at the Eddie Lee Smith Jr. Multi-Purpose Building on North Memphis Street.
“I just called a group of people who I thought could give us plants, and Strawberry Plains helped design the landscaping plots,” said Main Street Director Judy Smith, who was also busy on a hot summer day helping with the project. “Kristen Lamberson provided layout and design and instructions for maintaining plants.”
Jean Liddy and David Jones, who are earning their hours for Master Gardener certificates, were involved in planning and organizing the effort, as well as Bubba Hubbard with Strawberry Plains and Connie Mason with the recreation department and Larry Miller, supervisor of buildings and grounds for the city.
All expenses were paid by Holly Springs Main Street Association.
The Main Street design committee has identified five points in the Main Street corridor where these types of landscaping and signage improvements will be made. The Multi-Purpose Building has been added as one of these improvement locations.
“We need ideas and people to serve on these committees to help us imagine what the city could look like,” Smith said.
“We need people to help us, give us time, and donate money.”
Individuals and businesses who wish to join the Holly Springs Main Street Association in their effort to revitalize downtown are encouraged to contact Smith (662-551-8396) to volunteer or to become a member.
