It appears that this new structure is being well received by area youth.

"Plant the Promise" program

brings thoughts of tulips

appearing at E-Dot Park

next spring

Tulips were planted at E-Dot Park, along the West Street property line, on Saturday, October 29th, by volunteers organized by Amy Macechko of the Coalition for a Healthy Community-Oxford Area.


The planting was part of the "Plant the Promise" program, which is explained in the following article.

The Coalition for a Healthy Community-Oxford Area uses multiple strategies across multiple sectors of the community to engage individuals in the promotion of a healthier, safer community for all.


The “Plant the Promise” program provides a visual representation of the promises made by community residents to make healthy choices. Almost 4,000 red tulip bulbs will be planted this fall, throughout the Talawanda School District to celebrate Red Ribbon Week.


Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign designed to increase awareness of the dangers of substance use and the benefits of living a drug-free, healthy life.


In addition to planting at each school in the Talawanda District and multiple locations on Miami’s campus, numerous businesses, organizations, faith communities, and agencies support the program by having red tulip bulbs planted on their property. When the tulips are in bloom, they help to remind every individual in this community of their personal responsibility in promoting a healthy environment and the promise that the community has made to support all residents to make healthy, safe choices.


This program is funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services Community Grant Program.
