National magazine recognizes the city of Williamson

The city of Williamson, W.Va., is getting national attention in a national Sunday newspaper magazine for its Sustainable Williamson project.  The magazine, titled 'Parade', recognized Williamson in their April 19th magazine and mentioned that the project is being overseen by the Williamson Health and Wellness Center, and the town of Williamson.
The Parade article touched on the fact that the project is aiding the Williamson area by creating a farmers market and community garden, and also hiring local workers to construct affordable housing in the area.  Their efforts will include using reclaimed materials for the energy-efficient construction plans.
Parade is distributed in more than 700 papers in the United States.
