Pine Grove Beautification Committee ready for Fourth

The Pine Grove Beautification Committee has prepared for Independence Day.

Ray Harris and Rodney Lindell are pictured inspecting the new patriotic banners to be installed in the village. Lindell will install them.

Jerry and Sandy Gilman and Shirley Morrison have joined the group. They will help maintain the planting areas in the township.

The Welcome to Pine Grove sign was refurbished by a local sign company, and the Pine Grove Pioneers 4-H Club, led by Linda and Peter Westover, assisted in planting 13 flats of red-leaf begonias at the site.

Volunteer Charles Morrison has refurbished the benches on Main Street in Russell and has been cutting the grass in the area along old and new Rt. 62.

A donation was received from Jack and Barb Carlson. Donations are being accepted (and appreciated) at PGBC, P.O. Box 404, Russell, PA 16345.
