Snell Isle Plants and Statues Renovation Update - May 13

Thank you to all our Snell Isle residents who have volunteered to clean and paint our statues and also plant our planters. However, we need more volunteers to help. We have 41 planters and 120 statues (Panthers, Lions and Griffins) all awaiting their turn to be made more beautiful. Let’s not keep them waiting any longer please.

Our First Project is “beautifying” the 41 Planters around the Isle and it has already started. Spring cleaning means we will empty the planters - if necessary - of all their leggy plants and all that old dirt. We will clean up the planter (a little bleach and water scrubbing and a very thorough rinse). Then we will paint - if necessary –and then replant. A variety of plants are being chosen depending on the planter’s location and the amount of sun/shade the planter receives. All materials will be provided by the Association.

Later this year our Second Phase will be “beautifying” our gorgeous Snell Isle Statues – our Panthers, Lions and Griffins. They will need a good scrubbing and a wonderful rinsing before we can apply their “new makeup” – that is paint to the rest of us.

Do you live near one of these Planters or Statues? Would you please help us by “adopting” one or more? With your help, we can finish the planters - Phase 1 - before the heat of summer and the animals - Phase 2 - later this Fall.

Won’t you help us (or have your teenagers earn some community service hours). If so, please call Bonnie Hargrett at 727-821-1048.

Our Panthers, Lions, Griffins and Planters all thank you in advance for the support and TLC you show them!
