’Steve’s River Blossoms’
will grace the Quinebaug
PUTNAM — The Town of Putnam, along with Bousquet’s Appliance, announced a new fall 2020 display that will bring vibrant beauty to the Quinebaug River, “Steve’s River Blossoms.”
In memory of Steve Bousquet, former resident of Putnam and community advocate, the Town of Putnam will create colorful flower arrangements on the floating river fire pots.
This will bring an array of color to the river for the fall season.
The display will be placed in the river Sept. 29 and will remain until Nov. 5 for all to enjoy.
Town officials said they are grateful to Bousquet’s Appliance for funding this uplifting project.
The display has been officially named “Steve’s River Blossoms” in memory of Steve Bousquet because this was his dream many years ago, said Willie Bousquet, Parks and Recreation director. “And now we have the opportunity to make it happen during this fall season. We seek to bring some joy to people’s lives as Steve did with his generous acts of kindness during his life.” The town also thanked the Public Works Department and the Putnam Recreation Department for helping.
