Some of the America In Bloom contest awards are in already. Mayor Bob Eschbach presented them at Ottawa City Hall this week.
Avery Timmons and her dad, Josh Kazmierczak were awarded for the vegetable garden in their front yard in the 300 block of E. Lafayette. Betty Gulbronson, who lives in the same block, was awarded for her flower garden.
The Reddick Mansion volunteers gave the America In Bloom judges a tour of the mansion and showed them the flowers growing there. And CL Farms was awarded for farm-to-table food production and distribution.
The big awards ceremony is in California in early October.
