Henderson, Nev. – The City of Henderson Commemorative Beautification Commission named Gymcats the recipient of its Community Pride Award. The award was presented at the Henderson City Council meeting held April 1. Cassandra Rice, owner of Gymcats, accepted the award on behalf of her company.

The Community Pride Award recognizes Henderson citizens, businesses and groups that have improved the appearance of their neighborhoods or properties, or added to the beauty or cleanliness of Henderson. Previous winners have included homeowners, homeowner’s associations, businesses and volunteers.

Gymcats was recognized for its efforts to go green and reduce its energy consumption while also beautifying the community. The company recently installed energy-saving devices such as LED lighting, motion sensors and insulation, and also added reflective coating to the roof of its building. In February, the company hosted a celebration to unveil the installation of solar panels over 80 percent of its roof, which will improve energy efficiency and reduce the impact to the environment.
