Watch for a surprise in The Village

Posted on January 31st, 2011 by Sara


UPDATE:  You may have noticed that some of the merchants decorated around their businesses with red lights.  That was their surprise.  They plan to keep them up through the month of February. 

A group of merchants in the Magnolia Village has a surprise planned on the first day of February.   They have asked us to help them keep it a secret until they reveal their special Valentines themed ‘treat’ on Tuesday.

Keep your eyes on The Village around dusk on Tuesday to see what they are planning.

    The surprise I would like to see is a “broom brigade” get out and sweep the Village Streets, plant some drought friendly plants around the trees, get some nice bark on the ground, and then try to get all of the planters planted. Pressure should be put on the post office– they are the biggest offenders as their sidewalk and front area is always a disgrace. The Pub needs prodded, too. Employees do not do a very good job of emptying butt can and ignore the magnolia leaves all around. I know it’s tough times for small business, but Magnolia Village’s future is dependent on maintaining some sense of charm.

      Agree! I participated in the Mayor’s lauded Neighborhood Clean-Up Day two years ago, and was totally turned off to see the litter & cigarette butts around all the businesses’ back doors. (I was one of the many on trash patrol.) Seems like the people who are trashing our village aren’t residents, but business employees on their cigarette breaks. Therefore, business owners, not citizens like me, should clean it up.

      Any chance you would spearhead this “broom brigade” and gather a group to help the Merchants out? For example, I see Mike Smith of Leroux’s sweeping his sidewalk three times a day and as he does,
      leaves are droping from above onto the sidewalk he has just swept. Until these trees are replaced by the right kind of Magnolia,
      it will remain a problem.

      The Post Office’s Manager is Othello DelRosario 206-284-5958. Tell him to hire another counter person, too.

    I’m still in the village waiting. Maybe it shouldn’t be such a surprise. West not ‘get it’.

    So back to the point…
    Was it the red lights?

      Yes, it was the red lights. Just a reminder that Valentine’s is coming up.

        Too bad its just for Valentine’s Day. It would be more impressive if they grouped together and went ‘red’ for heart disease awareness.
