Down­town Drumheller is look­ing a lot brighter thanks to a group of res­i­dents and busi­nesses that have pitched in to bring flow­ers up the core.

The group, along with the Cham­ber of Com­merce have pur­chased flower bas­kets to hang through­out down­town Drumheller.

Dave Carter ex­plains the ini­tia­tive is a win-win for the com­mu­nity. The bas­kets were pur­chased from DARTS through do­na­tions. Carter said they have re­ceived do­na­tions from busi­nesses and res­i­dents for the bas­kets and pur­chased 12 to start.

They are us­ing the ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­tures in the down­town core that were erected un­der a pre­vi­ous pro­gram, to hang the bas­kets. They have also lined up a crew of vol­un­teers to help wa­ter the bas­kets.

Carter ex­plains the project is be­ing done in the spirit of co­op­er­a­tion.

Down­town busi­nesses, res­i­dents and the Cham­ber have teamed up to spread a lit­tle colour through­out the core and pur­chased flower bas­kets to hang down­town. With the bas­kets are (l-r) Jo­lene Pow­ell,
