I can’t believe I’m typing this (because I know what comes next) but it’s officially Fall and as the season of harvest it seems appropriate to give a heartfelt thanks to all the Adopt a Spot volunteers that made Kent look great this summer. Flowers matter and Adopt a Spot proves it. They matter in how we view our home town. They help tell the story of who we are, what believe in and what we aspire for our community. Sure, I’m getting a little flowery here but that’s the whole point…celebrating flowers and the people that bring them to us. This Wednesday night City Council will offer a big thanks for everyone that did their part to make Kent a little bit sunnier and flower friendly. If you see names on the list of sponsors and stewards that you recognize, PLEASE send them a note of thanks for the flower power that they brought to Kent in the summer of 2008!
