Let it Bloom

Probably one of Newport’s most visible and yet underappreciated volunteer efforts is Newport in Bloom’s annual basket hanging along Bellevue Avenue, Touro Street to Washington Square and Long Wharf. Kiki McMahan, Mary Berlinghof, and Rocco Wotton hung more than 75 baskets from the city’s historic lampposts. At Long Wharf, a volunteer named Leon assisted with the heavy lifting.
