Waterloo In Bloom

Waterloo In Bloom is a committee of volunteers working together to improve and beautify our community. Organized in the spring of 2002, the group was formed to prepare Waterloo to compete in America In Bloom, a national beautification program that fosters community involvement, patriotism and civic pride through the challenge of a friendly competition between participating communities across the country.

During the past eleven years the committee has grown to include more than forty members. Using funds donated by local sponsors, they plant over 50 containers with flowers to decorate the downtown area. Flower beds along Virginia Street, at the seven welcome signs, in the four village cemeteries, Vern's Way and the Memory Bank are all planted and maintained by Waterloo In Bloom volunteers. With the support of the Village of Waterloo, 68 hanging baskets also help beautify the village.

Last fall the committee planted over 800 daffodil bulbs through out the village and on Oak Island. They hope to continue this project each year.

The Waterloo In Bloom committee is always ready to welcome new members. If you would like to join Waterloo in Bloom and help to plant and maintain a container or an area around Waterloo, please contact the Waterloo In Bloom Chairpersons:
