Arlington Heights is tapping into the holiday spirit with new festive planters outside several businesses. The wintergreen arrangements with pinecones and berries are part of the Arlington Heights Community Association's beautification project.

According to a statement from the group, the project ensures that planters throughout the area will be filled with seasonal vegetation until next fall.

The association sent out acknowledgments to the businesses that sponsored these planters. These include Intelligent Labor and Moving, Realtor Julie Horvath of Senne, the Roasted Granola Café, Society Beauty Bar, Sports Etc. and Wonder Yoga.

A special thank you was given to Cambridge Savings Bank, which sponsored six planters this season. 

"We hope the community will continue to patronize these businesses and the many other unique Height businesses in this vibrant commercial district," wrote Janet O'Riordan, member of the AHCA.
