Booth secures grant for Lewes in Bloom A weed-choked area along the Lewes Canal, dom- inated by wild rose bushes and honeysuckle, will soon become a thing of beauty thanks to the efforts of a local non-profit group and a state legislator. State Rep. Joe Booth has secured $5,000 for Lewes in Bloom to construct a large planter, turning an eyesore along the canal into a showplace. Brenda Brady, the group's cochair, said the planter will be at least 100-feet long and will be lo- cated on the west bank of the Lewes Canal across from the Lighthouse Restaurant. "Hopefully, we'll phase this in starting with some foundation BOOTH plants, annuals and spring bulbs and then add to-it over time as more funds become available," she said. Booth said the project will be funded from his al- lotment of the Community Transportation Fund. "I got involved with this project through one of my coffee meetings," Booth said. "Warren Golde (who cochairs Lewes in Bloom with Brady) came to one of my meetings and asked if I could help. "One of the designated uses of Community Trans- portation Fund money is specifically for projects like this. "Using state money to help a group of volunteers improve their community is not only efficient, it also pays dividends by fostering a sense of cooperation between friends and neighbors." Brady says the funding will pay for the material needed to build the planter, as well as the soil and ir- rigation. She added they plan to break ground for the project in mid-to-late spring and hope to have the first phase completed by summer. Although only two-years-old, Lewes in Bloom has been active since its inception. The group's beautification efforts earned Lewes a national award earlier this year from America in Bloom for municipalities with under 5,000 residents. As a winner in 2003, Brady says Lewes is barred from the national competition in the upcoming year. However, she says her group plans to enter Lewes in the 2004 international competition. "So we'll really have to work hard this year," she said. The group plans to start a capital campaign in the near future to raise money for additional projects.
