Sponsoring flower beds

Question

I’ve seen a flowerbed with a sign honoring a person. What’s up with that? Is he somebody important?

Response

UAF Groundskeeping has a new program that invites individuals to sponsor flower beds or planters. The sponsors are responsible for planting, watering, weeding and any other necessary care, and in return can have a sign acknowledging their contribution or honoring someone else.

Anyone who is interested in sponsoring can contact Bear Edson; there are no more sponsorships available this year, but next spring there will be another opportunity.
