Beautify Carolina Forest was honored with the Outstanding Community Award on Tuesday, Nov. 29 during the fourth annual Make A Difference Day celebration in the McCown Auditorium in Conway.
The award, presented by Bo Ives, chairman of Keep Horry County Beautiful, was given to Beautify Carolina Forest in recognition of voluntary commitment and selfless dedication to protect the natural beauty of Horry County. Keep Horry County Beautiful, a Keep America Beautiful affiliate, is a subcommittee of the Horry County Parks and Open Space Board and is overseen by a nine-member board.
“It’s an honor for our organization to be selected to be the recipient of this award. Our volunteers have put in hundreds of hours and work hard to keep Carolina Forest beautiful by caring for the landscaped medians, picking up roadside trash, and other beautification efforts in Carolina Forest”, said Richard Skrip, president of Beautify Carolina Forest.
