Indian Orchard is Blooming! Mayor Sarno Joined with Indian Orchard Citizen’s Council to Support and Kick-off Indian Orchard Blooms’ Campaign

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined with the Indian Orchard Neighborhood Council today to kick off the Indian Orchard Blooms’ Campaign and thank those residents and businesses who continue to support this great beautification initiative.

Mayor Sarno stated, “I commend the Indian Orchard Citizen’s Councils continued efforts as they launch their 4th Annual Neighborhood Beautification campaign, the very successful ‘Indian Orchard Blooms’.  I want to thank and acknowledge all of the individuals and businesses that have helped to make this such a popular event.  I am proud to donate my part too.  Thanks to everyone’s efforts, especially to the Indian Orchard Citizen’s Council (IOCC) and IOCC President Zaida Govan for their continued vision in this beautification campaign for our neighborhood.  These flowers are beautiful to look at and will help keep the neighborhood vibrant and to help recapture the foot traffic and patronage that was lost due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.  Beautification campaigns such as this go a long way in helping to jumpstart and boost our Springfield economy.”

The Indian Orchard Blooms’ Campaign is an annual event sponsored by the Indian Orchard Neighborhood Council aimed at beautifying the neighborhood through the sponsorship of flower baskets, which are hung throughout Indian Orchard.  The campaign has grown every  year, from the initial launch of 75 baskets hung in 2018 to now 200 flower baskets that will be hung in Indian Orchard and along Boston Road. 

Also in attendance at today’s kick-off was State Representative Orlando Ramos, City Councilor Jesse Lederman, Hampden County Register of Probate Rosemary Saccomani, Indian Orchard Business Connections Committee Chairman Paul E. Caron, IOCC President Zaida Govan, and Chief of Staff for Representative Ramos Ayanna Crawford.
