A department of county government celebrated the support of the community during its annual awards banquet Tuesday night.Keep Forsyth County Beautiful works to promote cooperation among governments, businesses, schools, civic organizations and private residents to back environmental causes such as recycling and litter reduction. Program manager Tammy Wright said the annual awards banquet, which drew more than 100 people to Piney Grove Middle School in south Forsyth, is always a highlight.“We have so many great people that work with our organization that volunteer and that give their time that we feel like this is the least we can do to recognize them and give back because they don’t get any other kind of reward or compensation for it,” she said. The banquet is held at a different site each year, typically a school that has made a major contribution to the department in some way.
