One of my favorite sights in Great Falls, and one that I drive by every day, is the “Welcome To Great Falls” near the intersection of 10th Avenue South and Fox Farm Road. The sign is surrounded by trees, lush grass, and rocks, and was one of the first things that I ever saw when I arrived in 2002. There’s a “twin” over on the east side of 10th Avenue South, too, which is just as welcoming. And now, both of these areas have been spruced up, thanks to a group of energetic young folks sponsored by the Great Falls Chamber of Commerce:
“The 38 members of the 2004-05 Leadership Great Falls class spent the past nine months digging into the inner workings of their community. They also spent the end of last week digging in to make the community a better place, literally.
The class spent two days sprucing up the “Welcome to Great Falls” landscapes on the west and east ends of 10th Avenue South. They painted signs, pulled weeds, planted shrubs, cut sod, mulched and added river rock.”
I appreciate their hard work — it certainly makes ME feel welcome every time I drive by!
