Representing the City of Milton; Cyndee Bonacci, Milton Parks and Recreation Director, received the "2010 Visibility & Marketing Award" for a single-event publication from the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association (GRPA). GRPA chose Milton's "Remember to Remember" campaign for the award. This distinguished campaign included posters, pamphlets, and various advertisements created and printed in-house by Communications Manager Jason Wright.
Milton's city officials hope this is the first of many such distinctions for its efforts in promoting their annual Memorial Day service every May.
"Jason put so much time and care into creating this marketing design for our annual ceremony. I feel that it captured the essence of what we wanted to convey about Memorial Day," said Bonacci. "I am pleased others recognized his efforts and chose us to receive this award."
Bonacci and Milton Councilman Bill Lusk who heads the annual Memorial Day committee kept the award a secret until Nov. 15 city council meeting. At that time, they publicly presented Wright with the inscribed plaque.
"It takes an artist with a clear understanding of his subject to produce a perfect product," Lusk stated. "Jason captured the meaning of Memorial Day in this simple portrayal."
