Lewisburg wins America in Bloom competition


Over the weekend, Lewisburg took home first at the America in Bloom symposium in California.

The judges ranked Lewisburg best in the 3,500 to 6,000 population category. The judges take into account the floral displays, landscaping, urban forestry, environmental and sustainability efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression, and a category that combines maintenance and cleanliness.

"I felt like it showed that we have a good foundation of beauty and that we have a good foundation of coming together as a community as far as our volunteers go and that we care about our community. So, I was really really surprised, but also, very pleased," said Shannon Beatty, Lewisburg in Bloom Coordinator.

This is the second year in a row Lewisburg took home this award and they plan on competing next year as well.

If you're community is interested in competing, you can contact Shannon Beatty at Lewisburg City Hall for more information.
