 Message from Brightside's President, Christine Rau:

                                                        ADOPT-A-PARK SPONSORS

 THE PLANTING SEASON IS COMING TO A CLOSE, AND NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO CLEAN UP YOUR SITES BY CUTTING BACK PERRENIAL PLANTS, AND REMOVING ALL WEEDS AND ANNUALS FROM YOUR GARDEN SITES, PLANTERS, AND COMMUNITY GARDENS.

 GARDEN WASTE MUST BE PLACED IN BIODEGRADEABLE BAGS AND BROUGHT TO THE DPW ON PRIMROSE STREET BEFORE DEC 5, 2015.  THE SPONSOR CARD YOU RECEIVED AT THE APPRECIATION NIGHT IN JUNE OR BY MAIL WILL GIVE YOU ACCESS TO THE DPW DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS BY SHOWING THE SPONSOR CARD TO THE PERSON AT THE GATE.   IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DID NOT RECEIVE A SPONSOR CARD, PLEASE CALL THE BRIGHTSIDE OFFICE AT 978-372-4356

 MULCHED LEAVES MAKE A GREAT BLANKET FOR YOUR GARDENS THRU THE WINTER SEASON AND PROVIDE NUTRIENTS FOR ALL PLANTS.

 CHRISTINE RAU, DIRECTOR OF HAVERHILL’S BRIGHTSIDE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ONCE AGAIN THANK ALL OF OUR ADOPT-A-PARK SPONSORS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF THE BRIGHTSIDE ADOPT-A-PARK PROGRAM.

 WE NOW HAVE SIXTY ADOPT-A-PARK SITES THROUGHOUT THE CITY, INCLUDING NINE NEW SPONSORS THIS SUMMER SEASON, AND THERE ARE THREE COMMUNITY GARDEN SITE IN THE CITY.   THE RIVER STREET COMMUNITY GARDEN, THE HARRISON AND CHARLES STREET COMMUNITY GARDEN, AND OUR NEWEST ONE AT TATTERSALL FARMS ON NORTH BROADWAY.

 BRIGHTSIDE LOOKS FORWARD TO WORKING WITH ALL OF YOU AGAIN IN THE SPRING, AND THANK ALL OF YOU FOR SUPPORT ING ALL THE PROGRAMS BRIGHTSIDE PROVIDES FOR THE COMMUNITY.

 LOOK FOR CHANGES TO THE HAVERHILL COURT HOUSE, VIETNAM MEMORIAL, AND THE HAVERHILL POLICE STATION IN THE SPRING.

 HAVERHILL’S BRIGHTSIDE AND THE HAVERHILL GARDEN CLUB ARE WORKING TOGETHER IN ORGANIZING A GARDEN TOUR FOR JUNE 18, 2016

 THE BRIGHTSIDE ORGANIZATION WISHES ALL  A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON AND A HEALTHY NEW YEAR.

 
Our Mission:

Haverhill’s Brightside serves as a catalyst for community-based volunteer efforts to reclaim and enhance urban green space and conserve natural resources in the Greater Haverhill Area.  We believe that environmental preservation and community building are best achieved in partnership.
