HBA does wonderful job
Congratulations to the Hartselle Beautification Association (HBA) on significant effort, with visible results, in making Hartselle more attractive.
Much is being done through government, civic, business and individual efforts to bring Hartselle to its maximum potential, socially and economically.
Successful accomplishment of the HBA mission is extremely important in helping achieve this maximum potential.
Even with Hartselle's current appeal to new residents, businesses, visitors and shoppers, there is room for improvement. One of the most important areas needing attention is appearance.
An attractive community is essential in enhancing residential and business growth, as well as in bringing regional visitors, tourists and shoppers into and encouraging their return to Hartselle.
Most of us can relate to the satisfaction of being in surroundings that simply make one feel good. Visitors form that all-important first impression that, if favorable, encourages return visits and serves to pass the word along.
Carolyn Wallace (executive director) and the entire HBA are to be congratulated on their work. Not only have they structured a comprehensive plan of operation, but also have begun focused implementation of that plan.
Their success is highly dependent on volunteers and sponsors, exemplified by those participating in the Adopt-A-Space initiative discussed on page A5 of the Oct. 27 Hartselle Enquirer.
The organizations, businesses and individuals noted in the article are to be commended not only for their involvement, but also for setting the example for others to follow. Everyone can help make extra effort to set his individual or business property as a good example.
The work being performed by HBA is a big job. Maximum success of its mission is dependent upon expanding its corps of volunteers and sponsors and by individual residential and business owners exhibiting pride in their properties.
Please become involved, either individually or organizationally, in a community spirit to help Hartselle become the most attractive city on our region.
Robert C. Francis Jr., Chairman
Hartselle Development Board
