I am pleased to report that for the second time in our organization's history, we have won the "Honorable Mention Award" for Environmental Leadership.
The Arizona Clean and Beautiful Organization sponsors the Governor's Pride in Arizona Awards, and the honor will be bestowed October 30 at the 17th annual Governor's Pride in Arizona Awards Luncheon in Scottsdale.
We received this award for our participation in the fund raising for thinning the forest areas around Pine and Strawberry.
I want to thank all the members of Take Pride and all the residents of Pine, Strawberry and Payson who helped with our environmental fund-raising project.
Ira Gibel, president, Take Pride
