First Annual Bolton Hill Greening & Beautification Award Goes to Lee Tawney

The Bolton Hill Garden Club and the Bolton Hill Community Association teamed up on February 11, 2023 for our first annual greening briefing and reception to honor our volunteer park, gardens and tree stewards. In addition to learning about the many greening initiatives in Bolton Hill and our surrounding neighborhoods and celebrating our stewards, we awarded the first Annual Bolton Hill Greening & Beautification Award to our neighbor, Lee Tawney. Lee has done so much over so many years to improve and sustain Baltimore City’s natural and built environments. His contributions are too numerous to list here, but, among other things, he serves on the Midtown Community Benefits District Board, maintains the Congressional Medal of Honor Park (at Park and Howard) and is responsible for the Arts in the Parks program which brings musical and other performances to our neighborhood green spaces and has become a high point of the summer months. Congratulations, Lee!
