May is “Art Wave” Month!! An inspiring exhibit of over 400 pieces of children’s artwork created in the Port Townsend School District in grades K-12 displayed through the month of May in businesses in the Uptown and Downtown historic districts. To learn more and to sign up, visit our website
Hanging Flower Basket Program starts in May! The baskets are ordered through Henery’s Garden Center, they will be sending order forms to businesses that have ordered baskets in the past. If you are interested in ordering baskets, please call 385-3354 or email henerysgardencenter@olypen.com and they will send you an order form. The Port Townsend Main Street Program hires an independent gardening assistant to make sure the baskets will receive top care and attention for the season, 21 weeks! This includes securing the baskets to discourage theft, watering, fertilizing and maintaining the flowers. We offer this maintenance option to those businesses which find it easier to use an outside service for the season.  More details on pricing to come or call the PTMS office at 385-7911 for details.
