Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB), a statewide grassroots environmental and community improvement non-profit organization, recently named Keep Nolanville Beautiful a Gold Star Affiliate, a designation granted to 57 affiliates of KTB’s nearly 300 affiliates. Gold Star recognition is the membership recognition highest status any community affiliate can achieve.
To remain in good standing with KTB, community affiliates must submit a report, pay dues, attend training, and participate in a KTB-endorsed activity annually. In 2004, the organization introduced the concept of Gold Star recognition to reward those communities who sought to go above and beyond the established requirements. To achieve this status, affiliates must share information on their mission and goals, answer questions about their economic development and diversity and inclusion practices or participate in the Keep Texas Beautiful Awards or Governor’s Community Achievement Awards programs and provide a letter of support from their community.
“We are delighted to have re-achieved the Gold Star status recognition from Keep Texas Beautiful for the work that we do to encourage our citizens to keep Nolanville a beautiful and great place to live.” said Keep Nolanville Beautiful staff coordinator, Kerry Fillip.
Keep Nolanville Beautiful holds trash off events each month and hosts city wide fall clean ups in October. In addition to providing community service opportunities, Keep Nolanville Beautiful offers programs such as ‘Adopt a Spot’ ‘C3: Community Compost Club’ and volunteers regularly to teach informative programs at the local Boys and Girls Club.
