Let’s welcome AIB judges to community



TARBORO — Judges James Abraham and Ed Hooker of America in Bloom will be in our community on Monday and Tuesday and we’d ask all of you to give them your best Eastern North Carolina welcome.

We’d also join AIB co-chairs Buddy Hooks and Connie Sherrill in asking you to make one last push to make Tarboro look beautiful for this occasion.

Citizens can help by making sure the area around your neighborhood or your business is neat and tidy.

Please pick up any litter that you see around town.  If there is a container of plants near your business, please make sure the plants are well watered.

We’ve heard people say AIB is “not for me,’ but America in Bloom is a quality of life event — and an improved quality of life is for all of us.

To the AIB volunteers and to the homeowners and business owner/operators, thanks for your efforts to make our part of the world sparkle.
