For the past several years the Village Basket Committee of the Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce has implemented a volunteer effort that has since been recognized nationally for the outstanding contribution it has made to enhancing the quality of life of this already beautiful community.
Around mid-May volunteers gather to hang an amazing number of flower baskets along right-of-ways throughout Lake Oswego. The program is financed entirely by contributions and without government assistance. These donations cover the costs of hardware, planting and six months of loving care. Tax deductible contributions are made to the Lake Oswego Chamber Foundation.
Each year the program has grown, more baskets are being hung and communities from all over the country are calling to find out how they can replicate the program. In 2003 the committee received its highest compliment as Lake Oswego won the prestigious “America In Bloom” award.
Tax Deductible Donation Levels:
|Grand Garden Donor||Over $1000|
|Cascading Floral Patron||$301-$1000|
|Spring Bouquet||$51 to $300|
|Rose Contributor||$10 to $50|
