NARROWSBURG VIES TO WIN AMERICA IN BLOOM AWARD!

July 12, 2016

SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY—Narrowsburg is a first time participant in the annual America in Bloom competition; the nationwide beautification program that promotes community enhancement through the use of flowers, plants and trees.  Thirty nine villages, towns and cities across America are registered for this year’s annual competition. Narrowsburg is grouped with Edmonston, MD, Washtucna, WA and Castle Rock, WA, which have similar populations of under 3,000 residents. Two specially trained judges from America in Bloom will tour Narrowsburg and meet with leaders and volunteers who will showcase their beatification efforts.  The judges will provide mentoring and feedback which will help Narrowsburg in the competition.

“After fifteen years of Sullivan Renaissance competition, we are delighted to take the next step in community beautification and enter the national contest of America in Bloom” said Jane Luchsinger, lead beautification volunteer for the Town of Tusten.

America in Bloom celebrates and recognizes efforts of participants to "plant pride" in America, presenting awards for the “best of the best” in each population category.  Judges critique six areas including: floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, community involvement, environmental efforts, heritage preservation, and overall impression. Narrowsburg is the first Sullivan County entrant in its history, joining the ranks of neighbors in Warwick, Goshen and Catskill, NY.

This years award ceremony will be held in Arroya Grande, California from October 6th to 8th.  The judges’ final evaluation will be emailed to Narrowsburg on the Monday after the awards. Learn more about the program and the annual symposium at www.americainbloom.org.
