"We feel pretty...oh, so pretty!"
WE WON! AGAIN!!!
Okay, sometimes it’s perfectly fine to “toot your own horn” so we will!
Smithfield has won FOUR National Awards this year!
America’s Prettiest Painted Places:
Sponsored by the Paint Quality Institute, whose mission is to educate the public about quality paints and coatings, the nationwide “Prettiest Painted Places” competition has named Smithfield as the "small town" winner in the Southeast Region!
There were nine other entries from Virginia: Abingdon, Alexandria’s Old Town, Charlottesville, Manassas’ Old Town, Newport News, Occoquan, Winchester-Frederick County and Staunton, but we share the Southeast Region prize with the "large town" of Key West, FLA...congrats to them all as well!
Smithfield was awarded three prestigious national America in Bloom Awards at the National Symposium in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Sept. 22, 2012. The awards were for the following:
America in Bloom promotes nationwide beautification through education and community involvement by encouraging the use of flowers, plants, trees, and other environmental and lifestyle enhancements. America in Bloom is an all-volunteer organization - there are no paid staff in the organization at all!
