Beautification program trying to link the community to local business

The Stoneham Pride Beautification Program is seeking sponsors to help create a partnership between local businesses and the community. There are several sponsorship options available. Island sponsors may choose to beautify their area on their own, with the help of a landscape designer of their choosing, or hire a program-supplied landscaper to do the work. Island sponsorships range from $500 to $1,000, depending on the location. Businesses may also choose to make a cash donation in lieu of sponsoring a specific area. Cash sponsors will be listed by name on the town website under their donation category (silver, $25 to $100; gold, $101 to $250; or platinum, $251 to $500). Island sponsors will be featured on the town website with a photo of the island, the sponsoring business’s name and address, and a link to the company’s website. For more information, contact Erin Sinclair in the Board of Selectmen’s office at 781- 279-2690 or e-mail her at Sponsorships and contributions are tax deductible.
