Title

A Guide to the Valley Beautiful Foundation Records Collection

Description

This is a guide to the Valley Beautiful Foundation Records Collection. The Valley Beautiful Foundation was organized in 1981 in order to promote the beautification of the Roanoke Valley. It set about its goal by planting trees in the city, co-sponsoring conservation lectures, carrying out projects such as hanging flower baskets downtown, and distributing grants from the Virginia Department of Forestry to local towns and schools for Arbor Day celebrations. The records contain selections of internal records such as minutes, planning session notes, and financial information from the 1990s and 2000s. There are also many documents, articles, and photographs about Valley Beautiful’s events and grant-funded projects. Valley Beautiful disbanded in 2013.
