Funds for flowers: Organizations raise money for petunia baskets

Email

Since 2005, baskets of flowers have sprung up in downtown Jamestown as the weather warms, each year spreading a little bit further — down First Avenue and onto 10th Street Southeast.

The flower baskets, each containing wave petunias, will require about $11,000 to purchase and maintain this year, and with about $5,000 raised, the groups partnering together to bring the flowers to Jamestown are looking for more donations.
