Donors To Our Planter Fund

The planters along Armitage and Halsted help beautify the neighborhood and make the streetscape more inviting and help demonstrate a care and pride in our community.  Therefore, in the June 2017 RANCH Reporter we recognized persons as “Planter Fund Sponsors,” whose generous donations of $100.00 or more go far in helping RANCH maintain the planters and keep them looking beautiful all year long – something for everyone to enjoy.
