CONSERVATION

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 Carol Anderson and Jeanie Burchardt.

Please call Carol at 262-490-8773 or Jeanie 262-567-6781 at , if you have any “Yard of the Month” nominees!

ART

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