2001 - Community Effort Awards - Shawnee Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee

Shawnee Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee - Pop up to 60,000

The Greater Shawnee Area Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee successfully produced two ambitious projects this past January that will have a positive impact for many years to come.

After noting that many people were having trouble growing trees to maturity, the committee published “Trees for the Shawnee Area,” a detailed booklet about the limited number of trees suitable for the soil and climate of the area.

The committee also staged “Gardening with the Experts,” a day-long symposium on trees, plants, vegetable gardens and ponds that attracted 125 enthusiastic participants.

Our judges called the committee’s work “A good example of how an effective beautification group can rally the support of volunteers, business entities and other civic groups for the betterment of the community.” THE GREATER SHAWNEE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S TREES AND GARDENS!
