Tommy’s Watch and Jewelry Wins Beautification Award
[Lufkin, TX] Angelina Beautiful/Clean (AB/C) honored Tommy’s Watch and Jewelry with a Beautification Award. An award presentation took place on January 12, 2018
at Tommy’s Watch and Jewelry located at 800 S Timberland Dr, Lufkin, TX 75901.
The Beautification Award is an environmental award program that recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in protecting or enhancing our local environment. This is in recognition of achievement in helping to beautify the Angelina County area by landscaping, building improvement and other means which enhances the beauty of our Deep East Texas community. Tommy’s Watch and Jewelry was recognized for their achievement in investing into our local economy with this award from Angelina Beautiful/Clean and Keep Lufkin Beautiful. The locally owned and operated business moved to a new location and completely renovated the interior and exterior to bring new life into an old building.
Per Jennifer La Corte, AB/C Executive Director, “Oftentimes the word beautification gets misunderstood. For many people, beautifying begins and ends with landscaping. This business exemplifies the other aspects of what beautification is and what it can do for our community. When we spend the time to renovate and improve existing facilities, it raises up not only that specific neighborhood but also the entire community. It shows residents and visitors of the area that we care about our community and each other. When we take care of our environment through beautification efforts, recycling and/or litter reduction, we provide a cleaner place to live, work and play. That can translate into new or expanding business, economic growth, decrease in crime, decrease of expenses spent on illegal dumping, increase in solid waste revenue and so much more. At the core of it all, beautification means a respect for others.”
Angelina Beautiful/Clean has a mission to educate and empower East Texans to take responsibility for enhancing their community environment and serves Angelina County to help make it a cleaner, greener place to live, work and play.
