Members of the Ashcroft Communities in Bloom committee with the Talaricos: Shirlee Johnson

Car Wash receives Bloomin Business Award

Ashcroft's Communities in Bloom committee awards their Bloomin Business Award to the Car Wash.

  • Dec. 18, 2014 5:00 a.m.

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom committee has selected the Ashcroft Carwash as the recipient of the Best Bloomin’ Business Award for 2014. Several Communities in Bloom members were on hand to present owners Santo and Sandra Talarico with the award.

This busy carwash, located on a high visibility corner, was previously surrounded by little more than bare dirt, which created dust devils in the wind and mud when it got wet. Now, the property sports a new look; both neat and tidy and asthetically pleasing. A row of evergreens separate the property from the road and a lovely green expanse of lawn nestles between a post and rail fence. It’s a great improvement for the corner and offers a nice welcome to visitors passing through. Congratulations and thank you for promoting Ashcroft as the gem that it is.
