    The flower baskets are once again hanging in and around downtown Crookston as part of an annual summer tradition led by the Crookston Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee.   

    The baskets wouldn’t be possible without community support, in the form of individuals, families, agencies and businesses who “adopt” a flower basket.   

    Following is a list of this year’s contributors. Most were purchased in memory of/in tribute to a lost loved one, child, parent or other treasured person. In that event, the person/people being honored are listed after the comma. If no one is listed behind a comma, the individual, family, business or agency simply adopted a basket.
