Thanks to the Federal Hill Business Association and several volunteers, we have colorful hanging flower baskets in the commercial district. Anna Epsilantis of Big Jim’s Deli coordinated the effort. Brian McComas of Ryleighs Oyster and Taverna Corvino donated the flowers, grown on his mother’s farm north of the city. Vanessa Dallatezza of Sign-A-Rama contributed the American flags.
Baskets were installed by local contractors Aaron Stubbs, Craig Hannah, and Wayne McPartland, who donated their time along with Ed Jeffrey, who is ensuring the baskets stay secured. Other volunteers climbed ladders to place the flowers: Federal Hill foot patrol Officer Joe Goldberg (while off duty) and his son Matt, along with John Foti of Ryleighs Oyster and Brian McComas.
