Lions Beautify Uxbridge Project really digs pansies

Lions President Diane Seely at Uxbridge Municipal Building ready for planting.

The Uxbridge Lions are preparing those huge flower pots once again to continue to Beautify Uxbridge, maintained for many years by the late Marie Potter and her family and friends and in recent years by the Uxbridge Lions and volunteers. Now it is the Lions Beautify Uxbridge Project.  A Spring Pansy Sale is planned to keep the dream alive.
The Lions Club will set up their garden tent at the Uxbridge Senior Center at 37 S. Main Street, on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to take pre-orders.  Delivery for those orders will be Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Pansy purchases can also be made on April 9, while supplies last.  Forms for Pre-orders can be obtained at the Senior Center, or by Text at 508-450-2451, by Message at Uxbridge, MA Lions Club, or by Email [email protected] up to April 1.
Pansies are known for their versatile and colorful varieties and are extremely popular with flower growers all over the world.  Whether you call them Johnny Jump Up, Love in Idleness or Three Faces in a Hood, you can buy a Pansy Oval, Pansy Market Basket or Pansy Bowl for $20.  The proceeds from the Pansy Sale will benefit the Lions Beautify Uxbridge Project. As a bonus, buy two items and receive a ticket into a drawing for a Spring Garden Basket worth $50.
Donations for the Lions Beautify Uxbridge Project can be sent to Uxbridge Lions Club, P.O. Box 455, North Uxbridge, MA 01538.
