Traditionally the first Beautification winner of a new year is also the winner of Gallatin Chamber of Commerce's Christmas decorating contest. Boy were we happy when that turned out to be Bryan Deese. This guy is always hard at work making Gallatin an even more Beautiful place.

And the Winner is.............Chubb's!
Chubb's was named as the most recent Beautification award winner on September 3, 2020.
