SHERRILL — The City of Sherrill will reprise its “Yard of the Month” contest, beginning this month.
The city will select two properties with outstanding lawns in May, June, Juy, August and September in recognition of residents’ efforts to keep the city and their neighborhoods beautiful.
Every yard that shows “great care” and complies with local ordinances will be eligible, city officials say. Winners will be selected by city employees, commissioners and community representatives, and winners will receive a special sign to be displayed in their yard for the duration of the following month.
Signs will be collected and handed to the next two winners at the month’s conclusion. Properties can only be selected one time per year to recognize as many yards as possible.
All yards in the city will be considered, though individuals can nominate properties by suggesting them to Sarah Getman, Recreation Supervisor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winning properties will be announced on the City of Sherrill Facebook page and on the city website every month. Contact Brandon Lovett, Sherrill City Manager, with questions at email@example.com.
