Americans for Prosperity-Michigan Volunteers Help Replant Capitol Grounds

LANSING, Mich.—Volunteers with the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity-Michigan brought a group of volunteers to the State Capitol this Tuesday to replant perennials on the Capitol grounds that were destroyed last year by protestors. A&H Lawn Service generously donated around 80 perennials, including many specialty varieties, needed to restore the Capitol grounds. AFP-Michigan also provided breakfast and lunch catered by Clint’s Hot Dog Cart for all those assisting with the replanting efforts.

“We thought this would be a great way to demonstrate our commitment to growing Michigan’s economy,” said Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan. “We figured there was no better, hands-on way to help re-grow Michigan.”

The planting was live-tweeted with photos on social media @AFPMichigan, hash tag #GrowMI #SaveMI.

“All the signs point toward an improving Michigan economy,” said Hagerstrom. “We are already prouder, stronger, better for advancing the cause of freedom. There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are dedicated to growing Michigan…to turning our state around.”

Americans for Prosperity-Michigan is a statewide organization of more than 87,000 activists committed to strengthening our constitutional government, establishing fiscal restraint, and giving taxpayers greater control over government. We are dedicated to recruiting, training, educating and motivating grassroots activists to be effective in their own communities.
