On Sunday 23-Nov. Volunteers from Bogota Beautiful adding some Holiday lighting to the planters on W. Main St. These planters were set-up in June of this year to add some colour to the W. Main St. Business section of Bogota. For the Fall & Winter season the summer plants have been removed and replaced by solar powered lights. They are in the process of obtaining small evergreen trees to be the centerpiece of the planter all year round, in the meantime a painted support is being used to create a "tree" shape for the string of lights.
