OPINION

Thank you from the Chamber to everyone who adopted a flower basket

Carrie Bergquist, Chamber Board vice-chair, on behalf of the entire board

Thank you to everyone who purchased a hanging basket through the 12th Annual Adopt-A-Basket Program. These multi-colored flowers are the focus of some amazing pictures taken by community members which means they are being enjoyed by many.

A special recognition goes to D&D ‘s Thomforde Garden Center for preparing the baskets year after year.  We would also like to thank the hardworking staff of our Crookston City who make sure these flowers are watered daily.

Below is the list of generous individuals who purchased a basket, many in memory of loved ones passed or in honor of someone special.
