Keep Texas Beautiful's O.P. Schanabel Senior Citizen Award
Pictured (left to right) are: KFMB President Marilyn Lawson, Becky Bertoni, and KTB Executive Director Suzanne Kho.
Becky Bertoni received the O.P. Schnabel Senior Citizen Award for demonstrating positive, dynamic, selfless, public-spirited leadership in enhancing the Texas environment during her lifetime. Nominated and recognized by Keep Flower Mound Beautiful (KFMB) for her work at Green Acres, Becky was recently honored at Keep Texas Beautiful’s (KTB) 51st annual conference in Georgetown, Texas.
The KTB Awards recognize the efforts of individuals, businesses, media outlets, government agencies, youth, educators, and education organizations that make efforts to enhance their community and protect the Lone Star state.
Becky, a Texas Master Naturalist in our area’s Elm Fork Chapter, really represents this year’s conference theme, “Creating Community”. Congratulations, Becky; you’re an awesome ambassador and land steward. We appreciate your work to keep Flower Mound—and Texas—beautiful!
Town of Flower Mound Volunteer of the Year
KFMB President Marilyn Lawson received the Town of Flower Mound's 2017 Outstanding Citizenship Award.
A Flower Mound resident of more than 20 years, Marilyn has tirelessly devoted her time to helping make our Town a beautiful place to live. A Keep Flower Mound Beautiful volunteer since 2005, Marilyn has served as President and Treasurer since 2010, organizing numerous community clean-ups, recycling initiatives, and environmental fairs over the years.
In 2013, Marilyn founded the Lend-A-Hand program, which helps homeowners who are unable to complete home repairs due to age, illness, or loss of income. She was instrumental in securing the 2017 Governor’s Community Achievement Awards for KFMB, resulting in an upcoming $250,000 landscaping project along a local TxDOT roadway in Flower Mound.
Congratulations, Marilyn, and thank you for all you do to Keep Flower Mound Beautiful!
