Cuba, MO: Recently, I noticed that the planted areas by the tracks on Smith Street were looking a little shabby with weeds and some overgrowth. I meant to bring it to the attention of Viva Cuba to see if we needed to work on the areas.
But the folks at Frisco’s Restaurant & Pub took the initiative and, with the help of Korte Services, bushes and trees were trimmed, weeds cleared, and the areas near their business now look pretty spiffy.
Later, I saw the Korte crew working on the plantings in front of Roberts-Judson Lumber Company on Washington, another attractive area in uptown Cuba. They were spraying for weeds and maintaining the area for the season.
Cuba is fortunate to have area businesses that realize the importance of a good looking Uptown business district and that will take the initiative to keep their areas clean and attractive and help create a community as well as a business.
When you see businesses that go out of their way to present an attractive presence in the town, let them know that you notice and appreciate their efforts.
