"We are extremely happy to present First United Methodist Church with the City of Lincolnton Polished Apple Award," said Jason Harpe, Polished Apple Award Chairperson. "The rehabilitated building and restored stained glass windows is most deserving of this award and we commend First Methodist for their work."
The Polished Apple Award is a city-wide recognition program established to recognize and encourage positive community design improvements in the City of Lincolnton. A program of the City of Lincolnton’s Business and Community Development Department, award recipients are selected by a volunteer citizen group and are determined based on the established program criteria.
“The award recognizes business and property owners that exemplify community pride by exceptional upkeep and improvements to their properties,” said Brad Guth, Business and Community Development Director. “We want folks to take pride in the appearance of our community and give recognition to those that make exemplary efforts to do so.”
The review committee meets on a regular basis to review applications and nominations. A property owner may apply or a noteworthy improvement project may be nominated to receive the award.
