About

Our Committee

Our Committee

Newport in Bloom is composed of core committee members who participate in various special projects. We have no salaried personnel. We do not have directors, a staffing pattern, or any strict division of responsibilities. We’re just a fun group committed to beautifying Newport.

Membership in Newport in Bloom is free. We do ask that Committee members volunteer to help and support our activities, attend periodic meetings (where friendships always flourish), and – now and then – get their hands a little dirty.

New members are heartily welcomed and encouraged. Please sign up or request information on our Contact Us page or email newportinbloom.ri@gmail.com.

Honorable Mentions

A special thanks to our generous supporter, Mrs. Mary Coleman, for her donation which allows us to add another 40 baskets to the 100 we already have. Her support to Newport In Bloom is invaluable and we are so very appreciative of this very kind gesture. Newport in Bloom would like to thank Barbara Richter and Rose Northup for their continued support of the program. Newport in Bloom would also like to thank Colin McCabe, who served as the Newport in Bloom Webmaster for three years.
