Downtown Newport Flowers
Newport City Renaissance Corporation (NCRC) is pleased to present The Newport City Flower Pot Program. This beautification program is a mix of efforts that have existed in the community for a number of years. The project, spearheaded by Penny Thomas, began with hanging flower baskets on Main Street and has expanded across Veteran’s Memorial Bridge and East Main Street. The concrete urns full of flowers on the Causeway and the street-level whiskey barrels on Main Street are also part of the beautification program.
Penny grew the program to its current size, and this year, asked NCRC to take over the management of the program. The Newport City Renaissance Design Committee gladly accepted the task. However, the flowers need your support! Penny began this program by going door-to-door, seeking monetary support for the flower pots. NCRC is now seeking your support to continue the program into the future.
Each flower pot is valued at $180.00, which covers spring set-up, summer-long watering and fertilizing, and annual equipment maintenance. NCRC welcomes you to sponsor a flower pot or multiple pots, and donations of any amount are most welcome. NCRC will post “thank-you’s” on this page for every donation of $180 or more.
