Clubs Vermillion Beautiful planning for spring
Vermillion Beautiful, Inc. met Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. at the Austin-Whittemore House. Items of new business included nominations for the Beautiful Neighbor Award. This award is given each year at the Chamber of Commerce banquet. Commercial businesses and/or fraternities and sororities are eligible. It is a commendation for trying to beautify their property. Pressing Matters, the Vermillion Post Office, Lamplighter Motel, Paul's Plumbing, and Community First National Bank are this year's nominees. Dallas Jewelry will do the plaque for the award. The group talked about buying a few perennials to try along Cherry Street. Students from the IDEA program at the University will help prepare flower beds April 24 in preparation for planting on May 15. There is some interest in establishing a little park on the bluff on Main and 12th Street. Vermillion Beautiful, Inc.'s meeting date is being changed from the second Thursday of the month to the first Thursday. The next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 5. New members are welcome.
