Saguaro Power Company Receives Community Pride Award
HENDERSON, Nev.— The Henderson Commemorative Beautification Commission (HCBC) named Saguaro Power Company the recipient of its Community Pride Award. The award was presented by Mayor Andy Hafen at the Henderson City Council meeting held on Dec. 20. John Blythe and Keri Coleman accepted the award on behalf of Saguaro Power Company.
The Community Pride Award recognizes Henderson citizens, groups and businesses that have improved the appearance of their neighborhoods or added to the beauty or cleanliness of Henderson. Previous winners have included homeowners, homeowners associations, and volunteers.
“Saguaro Power Company has a history of community involvement, with much of it focused on beautification and conservation,” said Doug Guild, Parks superintendent, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “In recognition of Make A Difference Day in October, the company helped to fund and plant 85 trees and 300 shrubs at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve to enhance the wildlife habitat. Last year Saguaro Power Company took part in a tree planting along Pittman Wash Trail.”
