The New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce is requesting donations to sponsor the downtown flowers. Every spring and summer, flowers adorn Minnesota and Broadway Streets downtown. These flowers are paid for by the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce. The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected businesses throughout New Ulm, and the Chamber is no exception. The Chamber is now looking for creative ways to fund various expenses. There are 128 hanging baskets along Minnesota Street downtown, and 120 planter pots lining Minnesota and Broadway Streets. The Chamber pays for the flowers and for the hanging baskets to be put up. The flowers are enjoyed by everyone all season long! The total cost to purchase the flowers is $7,000. Please consider sponsoring a hanging basket or planter at $50 each, ensuring this tradition of beautification will continue. All sponsors will be recognized in three ways: listed at newulm.com.
