Nampa Garden Club annually chooses a residence and a business that enhances their garden, property and buildings to the betterment of their neighborhood and community. This year for a business, Nampa Garden chose Sunshine Preschool and Private Kindergarten. Joy will receive an Award to hang in the school and a Plaque with the name of Sunshine Preschool which will hang outside the Mayor
office in Nampa.
As a Kuna neighbor and Nampa Garden Club member I watched how Joy Plaisance Director started her vision by remodeling the worn down shabby house she took over. I would drive by and see the changes. After she opened her school, I was very impressed how she changed the corner of my street.
I brought Sunshine Preschool photo’s before the Garden Club and then I called Joy Plaisance and let her know that Nampa Garden chose her business for the award and that we wanted to do a small project with planting the annuals and perennials in Sunshine Preschools flower beds in front. The willow trees were already there so we added the color and textured flowers the children could touch. The children came out and watched us plant some of the flower and loved the colors and we loved the smiles. Joy Plaisance vision for Sunshine Preschool has enhanced my neighborhood, Street and Community.
