We have the wonderful opportunity to give something special to the community in which we live, work and play. It is in the spirit of giving and celebrating our sense of community and its unique characteristics that the following gift items have been selected for Rocky Mount. Each of the gifts in this catalog will contribute to the physical enhancement of Rocky Mount.
Many of these gift ideas are the inspiration of a recent redevelopment plan completed for the town of Rocky Mount. Individuals, families, churches, businesses, industries, service clubs, and organizations are all invited to participate in this unique opportunity to contribute to our community.
The community Tree Dedication Program was initiated to encourage individuals and businesses to dedicate trees in honor or in memory of someone special in the community. Many of the trees that grace the parks and entrance corridors of Rocky Mount were gifted to the community. Your gift will enhance the Town of Rocky Mount and serve as a lasting landmark for future generations to enjoy.
Cost $100 per tree (Cost includes the tree, installation, mulching, and staking)
Beautifully designed landscape median projects contribute to the beauty of the town. A project has been designed for the landscape median at Floyd and Franklin by a local garden club. An on-site sign will acknowledge each sponsor’s gift. If you or your business would like to sponsor this project or sponsor another location in town, please contact the Community Partnership Office.
The Community Partnership and the Town of Rocky Mount are in the process of selecting colorful banners for the historic district and entrance corridors. Banners welcome people to Rocky Mount and brighten the street.
Traditionally styled benches that are designed for public locations will be installed along the streets of the Central Business District. These benches will provide seating for pedestrians uptown and downtown. Benches are a great gift to a community.
