As a family-owned business with deep roots in the East Lyme area, Colonel Landscaping understands the importance of volunteerism to forging lifelong relationships. To that end, the company continues to play an active role in community events. As part of this effort, Colonel Landscaping became a supporter of the region’s popular Holiday Stroll.
Building community spirit
Knowing that the Holiday Stroll in Niantic provides a welcome to the season while building community spirit, the company gladly offered its resources and employees. The annual event features horse-drawn carriage rides, decorated buildings and boats, professional carolers in period dress, the arrival of Santa Claus and the lighting of the town tree. Despite these wonders, a highpoint of the Holiday Stroll is the popular snowflake drop of gift certificates to area businesses. Colonel proudly participated in the snowflake drop and was recently recognized for its efforts by the Holiday Stroll organizer, Niantic Main Street.
“We very much appreciate your willingness to provide Colonel’s bucket truck and operator for the much anticipated snowflake drop that is the highlight of the stroll,” said a spokesperson for the organization. “Niantic Main Street has been proudly coordinating the Holiday Stroll for nine years, but this event would not be possible without the participation of volunteers such as you. Thanks for making the stroll so special.”
Serving every day
While gratified by its role in making the Holiday Stroll a success and the warm thanks of Niantic Main Street, the company also believes in supporting the East Lyme region every day. Colonel founder, owner and longtime Connecticut landscaper Nicholas Schmitz gives back to the community by providing experienced and expert service at a reasonable price.
Often working alongside his trusted employees, Schmitz values building relationships with Colonel’s clients and providing them with the best, most personalized landscape service and ground maintenance possible. Beyond a landscaper, Schmitz believes Colonel enhances the beauty of the East Lyme area for all to enjoy, one yard at a time.
