Golden Empire cleans up roundabout
August 10, 2012
If you regularly use the Idaho-Maryland roundabout, you may have noticed that it has been weeded, watered and newly planted. Golden Empire Nursing & Rehab Center has “adopted” the roundabout as part of the Grass Valley Public Works Department’s Adopt-a-Park/Trail/Median program.
A crew of 19 from Golden Empire has weeded the area and planted a variety of flowering plants and shrubs, donated by the facility. According to Administrator Vicki Young, they are looking forward to planting bulbs in the fall.
“These programs are important to the community, and it’s a great opportunity to help beautify our public roadways,” added Young.
