Letter: Beautification award nominees get kudos

To the editor:

The Brown County Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate the following businesses on their nomination for the inaugural annual Brown County Beautification Awards: Artist Colony Inn, BETA Teen Center, Brown County Art Gallery, Brown County Inn, Carmel Corn Cottage, Nashville Masonic Lodge, Brown County Antique Mall, Farmhouse Café, Brown County Art Guild, Brown County Public Library, Brown County Water Utility, Brown County Winery, Calvin Place, Cornerstone Inn, Cox Creek Mill, Creekside Retreat, Madeline’s, Michael’s Flowers and the Village Green Building.

These awards were implemented to recognize Brown County businesses that have taken pride in the visual impression that they leave on the community in either landscaping design and flowers or building design and signage.

A committee from the Brown County Chamber of Commerce, along with members of the Brown County Garden Club and the Keep Brown County Beautiful, visited all the nominated businesses and judged them based on the awards criteria.

Winners of the Brown County Beautification Awards will be announced at the Brown County Chamber of Commerce annual members’ meeting and banquet on Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Brown County History Center. All nominated businesses will also be recognized at that time for their contributions to making Brown County such a beautiful place to live and do business.

Again, congratulations to all the nominees.

Tickets for the annual dinner may be purchased at thebrowncountychamber.org.
