To the Editor:

We would like to thank the City of DeKalb for their hospitality during our recent visit to judge the city as part of the America in Bloom National Awards Program.

America in Bloom focuses on the areas of beautification, heritage preservation, environmental efforts and community involvement. DeKalb is competing against communities from around the country for awards in these areas.

It was apparent the city excelled in all the areas we reviewed. The municipality has excellent planning and execution of its many projects and initiatives. DeKalb also has wonderful historical resources, parks and community gardens. We enjoyed meeting so many enthusiastic and committed individuals during our two-day visit.Thank you for all you do.
