Keep Iowa Beautiful LogoSully Hometown Pride is a program of Keep Iowa Beautiful developed to meet the need of many communities for assistance in the implementation of community plans and visions. Keep Iowa Beautiful works to improve the appearance and pride of Iowa's communities to build stronger communities both culturally and economically. Sully’s Hometown Pride committee was formed in April 2015 with the help of Jasper County’s community coach, Jeff Davidson. Jeff works with local committee members in 7 Jasper County communities to get their ideas for projects developed, approved, funded, implemented and completed. Here are a few highlights that the Sully Hometown Pride committee has been working on -
