Ms. Corrine L. Smith, of 1405 West Jefferson Street, is the winner of the first Springfield Community Beautification Committee Home of the Week Award this season, according to Chairman Marianne L. Nave and Co-Chairman W. Duane Sims.
The CBC is conducting its 52nd annual Home Beautification Contest this summer and twelve Home of the Week winners will be selected from those persons entered in the citywide contest.
Corrine has a beautiful well kept home with colorful plantings around the property. She has been participating in the CBC contest since 1980, when she received her first year shield award and a Home of the Week Award. Corrine will receive a 2017 Numeral Award and a Home of the Week Award at the October 15th Awards Presentation.
Suggestions for the Home of the Week may be mailed to the CBC for consideration, however only entrants already in the contest are eligible. If the person suggested is not in the current contest, their name will be held for automatic entry in the next contest.
To enter a business suggestion for beautification recognition, send a letter to CBC Contest, 76 East High Street, Springfield, Ohio 45502. Businesses along the periphery of the city will also be considered for special awards. Former CBC Home of the Year recipients and 2016 Home of the Week winners are not eligible to be nominated for Home of the Week this summer.
