Today is a beautiful day in Orrville, Ohio...because of YOU!

The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce expresses our gratitude to each and every member of our community who contributes to the beautification of Orrville.

Did you know that 288 Flower Baskets have been hung throughout the downtown district?  The Bloomin Orrville program is coordinated by the Orrville Area Development Foundation and is dependent on raising $20,000 each year to cover required expenses.

In addition to monetary donations, Bloomin Orrville would not be possible without the help from the following groups of individuals:

  • Orrville High School Seniors – for attaching chains to the baskets so that they could be hung as one of their Senior Day of Service projects the week before graduation.
  • Orrville Utilities Distribution Crew – for hanging all of the baskets on the light poles
  • Orrville Fire Fighters Association – for weeding and spreading mulch at Cornerstone Park (corner of W Market & N Vine) and to Mayor Handwerk for ordering the mulch and being there when it was delivered.
  • Planter Parents “adopted” 33 street planters for the season.These “Planter Parents” are responsible for selecting flowers and plants, planting them and keeping a watchful eye on the planter all season long.Each one is unique and special.

By the way, Buchwalter’s Greenhouse plants and grows all the Bloomin Orrville Flower Baskets at their greenhouse on the Back Orrville Rd.  Throughout the summer, Buchwalter’s will water and fertilize the baskets.  They also plant and maintain the landscaping at the Orrville welcome signs and at the entrance to the Orrville Industrial Park. 

Orrville would not be Bloomin without a local greenhouse to partner with.  The commitment to this program from store owner, Bob Buchwalter, goes above and beyond the service agreement.
