Picture this: Your loved ones sitting around a crackling fire in the fireplace during the holidays—family and friends enjoying the warmth and coziness of an old-fashioned celebration. Now take a step toward turning that picture into reality.
The Geneva Beautification Committee is selling firewood by the bundle or by the face cord. The firewood sale is a fund raiser to benefit the gardening work that the group performs in the downtown Geneva gardens.
Bundles of mixed firewood will be available for purchase at the Geneva City Hall parking lot by the utilities bill payment box (between City Hall and Geneva Public Library) beginning Oct. 6 through spring. Bundles cost $5, which can be deposited in the utility payment box. Pick up a bundle so you’ll be ready to snuggle in for a wonderful evening at home. Firewood bundles will be available through early spring.
If you’d like to be set for the winter, a face cord of firewood could be delivered to your home beginning Nov. 1. For home delivery of a face cord (8 feet long x 4 feet high x 18 inches in diameter) of mixed firewood, the cost is $90 plus a $30 delivery fee. The wood can be stacked for you for an additional $30. Face cord orders can be placed by calling Jim Gehring at 630-208-9453.
The Geneva Beautification Committee is a volunteer group of residents and businesses that plant and maintain over 50 gardens in the historic business district of Geneva. While local businesses have generously donated many of their needs, a majority of the plant material and some gardening items still need to be purchased with funds from donations and fundraisers. The Committee relies solely on volunteers to plant and maintain the gardens.
