DEDICATED 2 JULY 2006
In anticipation of Clifford Township’s Bicentennial Celebration on July 1 & 2, there has been a beehive of activity along the Main Street.
Members of the Clifford Township Community Alliance (CTCA), the Mountain View Garden Club, the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Department, and numerous community volunteers have worked many hours sprucing up the town.
The “Welcome to Clifford” sign is landscaped with flowers, shrubs and a serpentine stone wall. Across the street, recently planted maple trees, marigolds and lilies border the Cemetery’s stone walls. Flower boxes filled with purple zinnias and marigolds adorn the bridge. At the flashing light, Japanese Tree Lilacs flank the bank’s parking lot.
Continuing up the street, beautiful gardens, well tended lawns, and hanging baskets on the porches of private residences lead the way to the Firemen’s picnic grounds. London Plane trees, planted to provide shade in the future for parade spectators, line the fence. Colorful flowerbeds and a handsome, carved sign at the Fire Hall, welcomes everyone to the grounds.
Next time you drive through town, slow down, enjoy the scenery of our beautiful home town, and say “Happy Birthday”.
Over the past year preparations have been underway for a once in a lifetime celebration. A group of friends and neighbors spending an afternoon together painting signs for the Bicentennial is just one example of these preparations.
The essence of Clifford township is the long tradition of its people working together to make the community better for all through efforts that continue today in many ways… the fire company and its picnic, tree planting projects, improving the township building, the development of a recreation center, etc… none of it possible without community support and volunteer efforts.
The Bicentennial Steering Committee is grateful to the Clifford Township Community Alliance, the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Company and Ladies Auxiliary, the Clifford Township Historical Society, Inc., the Mountain View Garden Club, local churches and individuals who have volunteered their time on projects to make the celebration memorable and special!
