Harrison Township Beautification Commission
The Beautification Commission meets the fourth Monday of the month at 6:30 at the Tucker Senior Center, 26980 Ballard, Harrison Township, Michigan, 48045. The Beautification Commission maintains 17 gardens in the township through volunteers. We plant the boat at our entry sign, the pots at Veterans garden, the pots at the library and at the township and library entry doors. We initiate and plan and plant new gardens. Our annual projects include a litter clean-up the Saturday before Earth Day (April 21) from 9-12. We hold a plant exchange the first Saturday in June at the Tucker Senior Center parking lot from 12-2. During the month of July, we distribute 350 resident recognition signs for Great Gardening. On the 4th Saturday in July we hold a garden tour showcasing Harrison Township resident gardens that runs from 9-4. We plan the Veterans Memorial program at 1:00 held at Rosso Hall and the Veterans Garden the Saturday before Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Through our sculpture donation program, we strive to raise funds for community sculpture as often as possible. We distribute recognition signs for Outstanding Holiday Lights in December. Please join us! Call Sue Keehn at 586-242-3868 with questions. Enjoy some photos of our work!
