La Veta Beautification is grateful for a wonderful, rainy summer season

by LaRissa Morris
LA VETA — The downtown of La Veta is looking great this summer with flowers in front of businesses and large blooming planters along Main and Francisco Streets, as well as the large beds on East Ryus Avenue.
This program is successful due to our faithful volunteers and your generous donations!

A big thank you for all of the donations to the program this year. They have made it possible for the program to thrive this summer and will allow us to decorate for the winter holiday season.

Also a big thank you to the volunteers that work endless hours throughout the year, watering daily, planting flowers, setting out and putting away large planters at the beginning and end of the season, picking up the large plant order from the green house, weeding and managing the Ryus beds, blowing the leaves and dirt off of the sidewalks, weeding the dirt squares around the trees on Main Street, and decorating the downtown with Holiday greenery and lights. We love to promote the beauty of our town and are so grateful for those that help us accomplish this.

Thank you to our faithful and tireless volunteers:
