The Civic Beautification Committee sponsors Township outreach projects involving awards to encourage community spirit. These projects include the Montclair Blooms competition and annual Civic Beautification Awards.
Montclair Blooms – Wednesday, 5/23 from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.
The committee sponsors the Montclair Blooms (formerly May Basket) competition for local businesses to welcome spring by beautifying their storefronts with flowers and plantings. Business districts that participate include Upper Montclair, Watchung Plaza, Walnut Street, Church Street Montclair Centre and South End. Members from the Club circulate the district areas and place markers to recognize participating businesses. Standout displays are recognized on our social media venues and in local hardcopy publications. To ensure your business receives a visit, you are welcome to give the Committee a heads-up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
