Williams Community Center Receives Landscaping

In 2013, the Williams Community Center Association succeeded in completing its lifelong dream by opening the Williams Community Center to the public.

Housed in the former Williams Veteran’s Hall, the Community Center Association renovated the building from the ground up. After decades of planning and fundraising, the renovation was made possible through a $250,000 Community Development Block Grant that was secured by Colusa County Supervisor, Mark Marshall.

On April 15, 2014 the property surrounding the beautifully renovated Williams Community Center was given a much needed improvement – with the help of community volunteers.

Supervisor Mark Marshall and his wife Nancy Marshall showed their continued support of the Williams Center by donating all of the plants needed for the landscaping.

The Garden Club of Colusa County (Williams Branch) and Master Gardeners were instrumental in the planning and selection of the plants to be planted. The Garden Club members assisted with the planting and will also assist with the maintenance of the landscape.

Recology donated all of the compost and Leslie Poland his staff at Seminis, Inc. in Williams supplied ‘manpower’ and rotor tillers to prepare the grounds for placing the plants. Jerry Maltby transported the plants to the site.

Garden Club and Master Gardner member Diane Vafis commented that the plants chosen for the project were ‘water wise’.

“These plants need little care and can survive with little water,” said Vafis, “We wanted to use these types of plants in part because of the water issues.”

Some of the plants included yarrow, alvia, Santa Barbara daisy, cat mint, crepe myrtle and podo carpus.

Supervisor Marshall commented that this has been a great project for Williams.

“We are so pleased that we could be a part of seeing it come to fruition,” Marshall said, “There is also plans to pave the parking-lot in the summer.”

“It was a wonderful surprise,” said Williams Community Center Association President, Ron Simmons, “The volunteers did a great job and it is greatly appreciated.”

Simmons was among the founding members of the association, and he was able to see the project through its completion. ■
