Homemade wood birdhouses, donated to the Keep Creighton Beautiful Committee by the Ray DeMuth family in his memory, adorn Creighton’s Main Street.
DeMuth, a long-time Creighton businessman, spent his free time building wooden crafts and birdhouses were some of his favorites.
Doug and Milana Joseph and Virginia Buerman used paint, donated by the family, to brighten the houses. The family also donated an assortment of holiday and seasonal crafts for future projects.
Smaller birdhouses on sticks will be added to flower containers on Main Street and a large one, to the butterfly garden in Bruce Park.
Keep Creighton Beautiful was organized in 1980 and was instrumental in beginning the first recycling endeavor to Creighton. Committee members have been responsible for many city beautification projects, one of the most recent being flower bunks placed along Main Street.
The committee has plans to plant flowers and grasses in the bunks.
The committee encourages residents to “look up and out for ways to keep Creighton beautiful.”
