Have you seen the gorgeous hanging flower baskets lining Sandusky Avenue through downtown Bucyrus? If not, make sure you take notice the next time you walk or drive through town.

Pictured to the right are Harold and Marylyn Strang, two of the more than 40 volunteers that water these lovely baskets throughout the late spring, summer, and early fall. Harold is driving the new Bucyrus Beautification project watering tractor that was purchased thanks to funding provided by the John Q Shunk Foundation, Tractor Supply Company in Bucyrus, and the Walmart Foundation.

The fountain at Millennium Park on the square in downtown Bucyrus has been closed for the year.
