WEST HARTFORD — The Bishops Corner Neighborhood Association announces the arrival of 12 flower planters in Bishops Corner. The Knox Foundation delivered the planters on Monday, June 15. The Knox Foundation will also be maintaining the planters through the summer and fall, according to an email from organizers.

The program has been a success, says Jason Congdon, BCNA president. “The program was once again strongly supported by the community even during this very difficult time. We’re really pleased with the broad support from the business and residents and thankful we are able to continue this worthwhile project at Bishops Corner.”

This year’s supporters include Abby Dabby, Edens, Mayor Shari Cantor, Companions for Living, Intensive Education Academy, Konover Macca Plumbing & Electric, We Care Computers and a shared planter from Marty and Becky Webber and Sharon and Guy Marhewka. Planters have been placed along North Main Street from TD Bank to the Albany Ave. intersection.
