Plymouth Harbor received the award at Sarasota Garden Club’s 50th Anniversary celebration of Civic Beautification, held on Wednesday, October 14. The Civic Beautification Award Program honors businesses, associations, and the City for keeping Sarasota beautiful through excellence in landscaping. Each year, the Sarasota Garden Club’s Civic Beautification Committee reviews various properties in the Sarasota area that previously won this award, searching for properties that continue to produce outstanding landscaping and curb appeal.

Including Plymouth Harbor, the Sarasota Garden Club presented 33 Civic Beautification Awards, ranging from commercial buildings and parks to churches and condominiums. One hundred and twenty six people attended the event this year, including honorees and garden club members.

Plymouth Harbor would like to thank Jim Myers, director of environmental services, Marcos Franca, landscaping, and George Salley, chair of Plymouth Harbor’s Resident Grounds Committee, for continually making it possible for us to qualify for this prestigious award.
