Downtown enhancement in Keremeos

Garden Club brings harvest theme to downtown businesses

  • Oct. 5, 2011 8:00 a.m.

The Similkameen Garden Club is helping to decorate two blocks of downtown Keremeos to celebrate the harvest in our valley. The fruit stands always do such a good job decorating for fall. The garden club hopes to bring some of that beauty in the downtown too. Squash and pumpkins for the decorations are being supplied by the fruit stands. The hope is to be into fall decor from October 1 to 11. The timing coincides with many fall celebrations like the wine festival and Thanksgiving on the weekend. Merchants have gotten on board by putting out their pumpkins and fall decorations when their stores are open and bringing it in when they are closed. It is the first year that the garden club has attempted to do some fall beautification and so far they have had lots of positive energy toward the project.
