The Cedar Springs Garden Club has been hard at work beautifying the area across from the US Post Office at the corner of Cherry and First Streets, and was recently caught landscaping an area outside the Cedar Springs Public Library, at Cherry and Second St.

Thanks so much for making our city beautiful!
