Helping to beautify downtown

To the editor:

A few years ago, the Steubenville Revitalizaton Group had eight large cement planters restored from the past when they lined several streets in downtown Steubenville. They were cleaned then stained and planted with trees and flowers. The planters now sit around the Jefferson County Courthouse and along the walks next to the new Steubenville City Building. All eight trees and the perennials did not survive last year’s severe winter.

Thanks to Ben Bowers of Bowers Landscaping, who donated eight new trees; Larry Renda, an independent landscaper who planted the trees; and Dave Mosti of Mosti Funeral Home and his sons, who donated and planted new flowers.

To all of you a thank you for helping with our continued efforts in beautifying our downtown.
