Keep Henrico Beautiful seeks nominations for top properties
The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee is looking for exceptional residential and commercial properties for its 2012 Land Lover and Clean Business awards.
The awards, presented annually since 1995, recognize home and business properties that are attractively landscaped, well-maintained and litter-free. To be eligible for a Land Lover Award, residents must perform their own landscaping and lawn care. Nominees for a Land Lover or Clean Business award must participate in an ongoing recycling program, such as composting, curbside pickup or drop-off service.
The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee, which is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, will vote in May to select a residential and commercial winner from each of the five magisterial districts. The winners will have signs placed at their properties in June and will be recognized at the June 26 meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
Nominations will be accepted through April 30. Residents and business owners may nominate their own properties as well as others. Forms are available by calling Hallie Boisseau at (804) 501-4502 or visiting http://www.co.henrico.va.us/utility/keep-henrico-beautiful/awards.
On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.
“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
