Paw Paw Village Board hears request from Garden Club


PAW PAW - The Paw Paw Garden Club addressed the Paw Paw Village Board on Oct. 13 seeking funds for new planters displayed on the main street. Michelle Fay reported on the pride residents have communicated regarding the colorful flowers and the seasonal displays. The present planters are showing wear.
