Albany -  Dr. Kay Kirkman, Chairman of the Albany Tree Board, presented Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful's (KADB) coveted Tree Stewardship Award to the three Albany Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapters during the Albany City Commission meeting on April 6, 2010. 

The award is given annually to a local business, individual or organization in recognition of outstanding contributions to protect, preserve and enhance the urban tree canopy of Albany and Dougherty County.

"The Chehaw, Commodore Richard Dale and the Thronateeska Chapters of DAR have recognized that green space is a quality of life issue and an investment in the future of Albany," said Julia Bowles, Executive Director of KADB.  "For the past 10 years these three organizations have purchased a tree, which was planted at the City's Arbor Day Celebration.  These organizations are providing a greenspace legacy for future generation and we applaud their environmental efforts."
