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!
