Message of the Day – Red

Back in 1076, Crystal Lake celebrated the nation’s 200th birthday like communities all over the country.

Headed by Tom Doby , the committee decided to encourage people to plant Euonymus bushes.

Also known as the “burning bush,” you can see their brilliant red color throughout Crystal Lake this time of year.

This particular bush is outside my CPA George Roach’s office entrance on Walkup Avenue.

We have larger ones in our yard and hanging over our fence hanging over the fence from our neighbor’s yard. Odds are good the two were planted in 1976 as “Bicentennial Bushes.”
