Support the flowers at Spa Park at Sunnyside Gardens, Sat. 5/22/10

Spa State Park in bloom, with your help
State budget cuts have claimed another victim: the floral display that greets visitors to the Saratoga Spa State Park.

Every year, Dan “the Flower Man” Urkevich installs a pretty amazing display of flowers at the park’s South Broadway entrance. This season, though, the money to repeat the effort just isn’t there.

The folks at Sunnyside Gardens are stepping up to help him out, though.

On Saturday, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. they’ll hold a benefit in which customers will be allowed to donate the cost of one flat of flowers, $22, which will be matched by the nursery. Anyone who contributes will be entered in a raffle and eligible to win a hanging basket.

Urkevich will also be out at the nursery on Saturday to talk about his handiwork.

Sunnyside Nursery is located on Route 9N, just west of the train tracks.

I will give you $22.00 to take down the "Bruno" sign at the mineral spring pavilion.

Stumbled into this website by chance but I’m sure glad I clicked on that link. You certainly answered all the questions I’ve been dying to answer for some time now. Will definitely come back for more of this. Thank you so much
