The past couple of weeks have seen a flurry of activity with volunteers weeding the flower beds around Whitehouse; namely the Wildscape, the wall at Brown Elementary, Whitehouse City Park and the Adopt-A-Spots at the corner of Hwy 110 and FM 346. This is because the good folks at Keep Texas Beautiful are heading into town this week to take pictures and video of all the hard work done by Keep Whitehouse Beautiful volunteers in preparation for the GCAA awards dinner later in the month of June during the annual KTB conference. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped us get these beds looking great!

Hundreds of volunteers turned out on a crisp Saturday morning in April to show how much they care about the City of Whitehouse. Teams registered at Whitehouse City Park, then grabbed their t-shirts, refreshments and were off to collect trash on selected roads. A big thank you to the Whitehouse students, teachers, the local churches, neighborhoods, Whitehouse City Mgr Kevin Huckabee and Whitehouse Council Member Kelvin Fox for giving up a part of their Saturday for a worthy cause. And a big MOO to Chick-Fil-A for bringing their mascot to our event!
