Congratulations to Thom Painter, Lizz Bullock Norman, C Howison Hollenberg and the rest of Wakefield Forest for completing their neighborhood beautification project by replacing their neighborhood sign in June! More planting around the sign will be done as the summer progresses as well as additional beautification projects in other parts of Wakefield Forest.

Some of this project was paid for through private donations and the work of great volunteers. DECA is proud to have donated funds to help support this effort and we would like to encourage other DECA neighborhoods to come to us for help on similar neighborhood beautification projects.

As one former DECA officer said when Wakefield Forest’s project was discussed at a DECA Board meeting in April: “Beautification projects are often the most physical sense of change that DECA can point to having a hand in. They also have the ability to change the perception of any neighborhood. If our neighborhood’s common areas are well maintained, it benefits us all.”
