Sound Off: Flower volunteering

Did I miss the city’s annual volunteer flower planting days?

Not yet. Because of the unseasonably cool weather, the city pushed back this spring’s volunteer planting days. Seven opportunities are planned, beginning this week. Between 10 and 12 volunteers — age 14 or older — are needed to help plant flowers from 9 a.m. to noon the following days and locations: Today, Thursday, May 15 and May 16 at South Park, and Saturday, Tuesday and May 21 in downtown Lawrence. For more information or to sign up, call the Lawrence Parks and Recreation office at 832-3450 or go online to
