Small business owners, Sandpointians and flower lovers: There are still opportunities to sponsor hanging flower baskets for downtown Sandpoint.
Volunteer Ranel Hanson said of the 90 baskets ordered, over 60 have sold, leaving around 30 hanging baskets left to sponsor. Those interested in sponsoring the flower baskets for $75 apiece should call Hanson at (208) 946-7703 or send a check to the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce, 1202 N. Fifth Ave., Sandpoint, ID 83864. Please write “Hanging Flower Baskets” on the memo line.
The hanging baskets traditionally were purchased by the Business Improvement District, which was disbanded by the Sandpoint City Council last fall, leaving the flower baskets to be funded by individuals and business owners.
The hanging baskets are slated to be installed the week before Lost in the ‘50s, so ensure sponsorships before May 11.
