Thompson Falls is a beautiful place to live and we want to maintain that beauty!
You can help by being a part of Beautification Days. Our objective for this annual event is to both encourage people to "spruce up, clean up, pickup" as well as assist those who are unable to do the work themselves.
Thompson Falls Beautification Days is a community wide collaboration. We hope you will contribute some of your time on these dates or any other dates to help make Thompson Falls a cleaner and more beautiful place in which to live. We are "Better Together!"
Don't leave the volunteer work to others, or it might not get done! Your help is needed and appreciated.
It all started with a need for a trash can in the front of the library. The library asked the Chamber to help purchase a new garbage can so visitors had a place to toss garbage before entering the library.
Like flowers begin to grow and bloom each spring, the idea occurred to a group of Thompson Falls residents, that one garbage receptacle could blossom into something more significant – a whole bouquet of programs that work to clean up and beautify the community, which is what is now known as Thompson Falls Beautification Days.
Now, a few years later, headed up by the Thompson Falls Main Street group, a long list of volunteers, organizations, businesses, government agencies and schools work together to clean up the community. It is no longer all about adding garbage cans to fight litter, but the idea has branched off into many different facets including a focused effort to assist town residents with special needs to keep their yards looking great. Other elements include awards and recognition, school art projects, student volunteerism programs, public service, education, special yearly projects and an overall effort to clean out the cobwebs from winter and haul that junk out of town.
Making the Thompson Falls area sparkle each spring is a community wide effort that needs community wide support. Mark your calendar today, dig out your pruning shears and gardening gloves and sign up for this three day event which takes place usually the 3rd week in April of every year.
Starts in January each year to create a "keep our community beautiful" awareness in our elementary children.
The artist of the best poster in each grade is given an "art basket" prize funded by First Security Bank.
These posters become the basis of the flyers publicizing Beautification Days.
Posters are judged in March, awards will be given out the end of March.
Children's art posters, Beautification Days and Thumbs Up flyers will be put up throughout the businesses in town the last week in March.
