What is a Flutterby? A Flutterby is the latest creation from Kirkwood’s Seeds of Happiness Guy, Mark Borella. Borella created these fun and colorful butterflies to spread happiness and adventure in his hometown. Twelve Flutterbys will be planted in Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District by the Seeds of Happiness team on April 1, April 8, April 22 and April 29.
In 2006 Seeds of Happiness started out as leftover lumps of clay that local artist Mark Borella made into little smiles to give to friends who were going through hard times and needed a little smile. The seeds and smiles spread. The first seeds have grown into a creative studio/store on Prospect Avenue in Kirkwood and online business too: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Downtown Kirkwood Flutterby Hunt is coordinated by Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District and Seeds of Happiness. Since 1975, the Downtown Kirkwood organization has served businesses and property owners in Downtown Kirkwood through marketing, public area enhancements and administration of Kirkwood Farmers’ Market.
*Red Flutterbys may be presented at the Downtown Kirkwood SBD office at 130 East Jefferson Ave. during business hours to receive a $20 Downtown Kirkwood Gift Certificate.
