ATLANTA — Keep Pembroke Beautiful recently received the Governor’s Circle Award.
The statewide award recipients were at the State Capitol as part of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation’s annual Legislative Day.
The Governor’s Circle Award recognizes performance by certified affiliates in reducing litter, minimizing waste and greening local communities. To qualify, affiliates must be in good standing with Keep America Beautiful, conduct an annual Litter Index, calculate the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio and engage volunteers to take responsibility for their community environment. Additionally, the affiliate must be an active member of the Georgia network.
"The affiliates receiving the Governor’s Circle Award represent the best of community improvement efforts," said Sarah Visser, executive director of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation. "They are doing the hard work every day to keep their communities economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable".
Georgia is the first state in the Keep America Beautiful network to create an award modeled on KAB’s national good standing designation.
