Hawthorn Woods In Bloom
The Village of Hawthorn Woods joined the America in Bloom national environmental effort in 2018 and formed its own local chapter in 2019 called Hawthorn Woods in Bloom. America in Bloom is a national non-profit organization which provides communities with a framework for building community pride, participation, and beautification.
In 2019, Mayor Joseph Mancino appointed the inaugural 14 members to the Hawthorn Woods in Bloom Committee. These members serve as volunteers for this initiative. The Hawthorn Woods in Bloom Committee is working in several different community areas including:
- Cultural heritage
- Flowers and landscaping
- Excellence in Landscaping Award
- Community Vitality
- Urban Forestry
- Public Awareness
- Environmental Education
