Members of the Hoe and Hope Garden Club in Pulaski recently contacted Pulaski Mayor Shannon Collins about the possibility of adding some floral color to the planters that surround the historic Pulaski Train Station.
Collins, one of the owners of Poor Boys Produce and Plants in Pulaski, responded.
It seems Poor Boys had some excess plants and flowers available that needed to be used, so he donated them to the train station effort.
This week, several members of Hoe and Hope went to work voluntarily to plant the colorful vegetation around the station.
Club members involved included Mary Beth Glenn, Diana and Paul Bennett, Nancy Bishop and Kay Williams.
Collins and Jamye Steger from Poor Boys delivered the plants. According to Collins, the Town of Pulaski will
provide watering service to help the flowers and plants thrive throughout the summer.

Glenn said the addition of the flowers and plants will make the train station even more attractive to residents who attend the Marketplace on Tuesdays and the first Sundays of each month this summer – as well as visitors to the town who stop by.
