Daffin' in the Ville is a community beautification project where we come together to plant daffodils in the Fall that bloom in the Spring and bring our city alive with color! Sponsorship money helps pay for the bulbs and allows us continue to support the youth of Bartlesville.
Daffin' the 'Ville brightens up Community
Examiner-Enterprise March 26, 2019
In October 2018 volunteers came together to plant just over 9,000 yellow daffodil bulbs around Bartlesville. It was all part of a beautification project dubbed "Daffin' the 'Ville" organized by the PlayForBurk Foundation.
Motorists may have noticed the yellow daffodil blossoms forming a large letter "B" on the hill at the Adams Boulevard overpass hillside of State Highway 75. There is another yellow "B" on the hill near the pond at Sooner Park.
There are more daffodils blossoming at Adams golf course, Frank Phillips Mansion, Spirit Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, First Presbyterian Church, Lee Lake, Sooner Park, BHS, Madison, Central and most of the elementary schools in town.
"The foundation is proud to continue to promote projects like this to bring us together to serve and help make our community a better place," said foundation president, Clint Hansen. "Volunteers made this project possible and generous donors helped us raise $4,000. This money will allow us to continue to sponsor various youth-related events and activities this year."
The bulbs were purchased at cost by the foundation from Green Thumb Nursery & Greenhouses. Bulbs were distributed free of charge to interested organizations and schools. Many of the schools involved their students in planting the bulbs to give them a part in making their school more beautiful.
Hansen continued, "A gift of daffodils is said to ensure happiness ... especially when given in bunches. We hope all who see these blossoms each year will remember that even through the trials of life we can find happiness."
