Keep Graham Beautiful, often referenced as KGB, is an all-volunteer organization reorganized in
February 2012, five years after its predecessor became inactive. Keep Graham Beautiful was first
formed in 1991 and served the community well until it disbanded in 2006.
Keep Graham Beautiful re-launched beautification initiatives on Feb. 16, 2012, when volunteers
shared photographs of blighted locations with the Mayor and City Manager. A presentation to the
Graham City Council followed on March 15.
Keep Graham Beautiful reaffiliated with Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) in March 2012. KGB
immediately established a white-on-green checkmark logo and set about planning its first
communitywide Spring Clean-Up in April 2012.
Application for 501(c)3 non-profit designation is pending.
KGB initiatives and activities are coordinated by a nine-member board of directors, working in
close cooperation with the City of Graham Public Works Department. The board's focus is to
fulfill the KGB mission, “Graham's Beauty Is Our Duty.”
