The weeds had overgrown the sign that bid visitors welcome to Carver Park, and three Fulton residents had enough.

By Sunday afternoon, the park’s name was visible again thanks to the efforts of Mary Galbreath, Stacy Childs and Lisa Thompson, who set out to beautify the park as a way to give back to the community.

“The weeds were all the way up to the top,” Mary Galbreath said. “It had been leading to that for (a while) and we like flowers, so we went and got them.”

The trio continued their work Wednesday, spending about three hours planting flowers donated by Westlake Ace Hardware. Most of them were perennials and will continue to bloom in coming years.

They are also accepting donations to continue to beautify the sign. Those with flowers can contact Galbreath at (573) 289-1264, or Thompson at (573) 310-4129.
