The “Yard of the Month”

This contest provides awards to neighbors and club members with beautiful yards. We do this for the months of June through September each year. Three private homes and one business are selected for each of those months. Two of our club members take nominations, check the home or business landscaping, name the winning yards and place the “Yard of the Month” signs. Chairmen for this committee are Sue Diehl and Jeanne Gadwood.

Please call Sue Diehl 815-262-7770 or Jeanne Gadwood 262-354-0319 at , if you have any “Yard of the Month” nominees!


Art contests are held through the 5th District competition and at the State Convention.


Operation Smile:

This project is sponsored by GFWC to correct children’s facial birth defects in third world countries. One of our club members has traveled to fourteen 3rd world countries in support of this project. At this time, we are supporting them with donations that are being used to build hospitals in these countries.
