The north entrance to Ferriday has a new look thanks to the hard work of the Ferriday Garden Club and Mayor Rydell Turner's dedication to making Ferriday more attractive.

The garden club selected this site for their annual "Plant-it-pink" project. This is a program adopted by the National Garden Clubs Inc. dedicated to heighten awareness of Breast Cancer during the month of October.

This year club members trimmed up overgrown crepe myrtles at the welcome sign. Town workers removed weeds and debris from the site and club members constructed an extensive stone walled bed and planted pink Drift roses and pink dianthus for a fresh look for the north entrance to Ferriday on Hwy 65/425.
