FOR THE DAILY SOUTHERNER
To the Editor:
I would like to express a sincere thank you to all who made the America in Bloom (AIB) experience a success. The community involvement was impressive, including an active Steering Committee, volunteers who labored to complete projects, and support from the Town of Tarboro. Generous donations from individuals, businesses and civic groups made it possible to implement projects, such as Courthouse Square. Historic district residents graciously opened their homes for housing and dining the judges during their stay.
The AIB judges, James Abraham and Ed Hooker, were a great team for Tarboro. They were keenly interested in Tarboro and each AIB project, and were genuinely engaged with the people they encountered. They were also a visionary team as they discussed ideas for making Tarboro a better town. We will not receive the comments from the judges until September, but I anticipate a positive review.
Again, thank you Tarboro for your support. This has been a great year because so many people became involved and made good things happen.
