By Mike Karam, Haddam Beautification Committee.
When I started the Haddam Beautification Committee this was the project that inspired it all. Every time I drove by the Village Market, I would look at the median and see a sad eyesore. It is one of the most visible areas as you drive through town. I knew I had to do something.
Beautification isn’t just about mowing and weeding, it’s about pride and sense of place. It’s about showing the young kids in our community that we care about what our town looks like for those who live here, and all who visit.
A special thanks to the Haddam Economic Development Committee for contributing toward the purchase of some of the material used in this project.
