Keep Texas Beautiful Annual Conference
We sure did have fun this year at the annual KTB conference, held in San Antonio. We were very fortunate to receive 3 awards this year, The GCAA Governor's Community Achievement Award, Volunteer of the Year Award, and third place Media Award. We are very thankful to all of our sponsors, partners and volunteers that help make our organization possible. We share this success with you.
- Keep Texas Beautiful has recognized Flower Mound as one of the 10 winners of the 2017 Governor’s Community Achievement Awards (GCAA) for their outstanding overall efforts to keep their communities beautiful. The award is one of the most coveted annual environmental and community improvement honors in Texas. The winners will share $2 million in landscape funding from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT); Flower Mound will receive $250 K for a landscaping project along a local state right-of-way.
- Communities submitted materials to one of 10 population categories and judges chose the winners based on their achievements in seven environmental and community improvement areas: community leadership and coordination, education, public awareness, litter prevention and cleanup, litter law and illegal dumping enforcement, beautification and community improvement, and solid waste management.
- To make things sweeter! KFMB Marilyn Lawson was honored as the Volunteer of the Year Award for the State of Texas, by KTB. Marilyn spends countless hours working to make Flower Mound a better community, and organizes several events benefitting the community, as well as individual homeowners. In 2013, she began the Lend-a-Hand Community Initiative, which provides assistance to Flower Mound homeowners who are unable to take care of home repairs due to age, illness, or loss of income. We appreciate everything you do Marilyn! Flower Mound would not be the same without you!
