A few months ago the City of Bentonville on behalf of the Mayor nominated me for a Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks "Gardenfest Award". I WON the "Longstanding Green Leadership Award"
I am honored and humbled. I want to give a special thanks to Danielle Shasteen, The Mayor and all my other great friends that nominated me. I met most of them when i volunteered for them or with them.
The award itself is a Dogwood Tree and a plaque to be placed in front of it. I unfortunately had to miss the award ceremony but the Gardens have asked me where and when i want my award ceremony. WOW how great is that. So i am planning something BIG! (stay tuned)
BUT until then... They wrote up a great article in the City News Letter about it. This letter is sent out to all the residents in the city. Check out page 7. It actually made me blush a little. Don't worry i blush green! Here is the article (.pdf) Also on a total coincadence 2 of my boys are on the front page of the same letter. On the top of page 1 My sons Jarred and Jaiden are helping cut the ribbon to a new park. Check it all out>> http://www.bentonvillear.com/docs/admin/newsletters/june_2010.pdf
