On Thursday, September 10, the city of Cedar Springs honored the winners of this year’s beautification awards, nominated and judged by the Cedar Springs Garden Club.
Winner of the residential award was Gary and Sandra Brooks, of 245 W. Muskegon. “This is cute stuff they do,” remarked Mayor Linda Hunt. “This is what we want the citizens to do.”
Winner of the commercial award was McBride and Caron Accounting, 123 S. Main St. “This was a bigger project than just landscaping,” said Hunt. “They have a new façade, new windows, awning, doors. Thank you for keeping it beautiful.”
Winner of the mayor’s choice award was Bill and Sue Wakeland. “They do really neat things,” said Hunt. “Thank you for your contribution to the beautification of our community.”
Each winner was presented with framed photos of their landscaping, and a gift bag.
