Lupines to Bloom at Waterbury Youth Services for Earth Day


Waterbury Youth Services (WYS) extends heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated volunteers from the United Way of Greater Waterbury, the Small Manufacturers Association of Connecticut (SMA), and staff from Unipharm, Inc. and Click Bond, Inc. who brought the spirit of community and environmental stewardship to life on Earth Day. Their hard work will transform WYS grounds into a colorful, inviting landscape.

On April 21st, the enthusiastic group planted vibrant lupine bulbs in front of WYS, symbolizing the growth and potential of the youth who benefit from our programs. These committed volunteers, all SMA members, also landscaped the property, ensuring that WYS's grounds are as inspiring as the services provided to the community's youth. Their hard work and dedication highlight the importance of collaboration and community involvement.

As the lupines bloom, they'll serve as a constant reminder of the power of community spirit and collaboration.

Margaret Mead's words, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has," ring true for the lupine planting and landscaping project at WYS, demonstrating the power of community in creating a better world, one lupine at a time.
