City seeks Yard of the Week nominations
By Debbie Harger
Is there a yard or garden in your neighborhood that you admire? A committee has set out for the second year to emphasize that Blaine is beautiful by presenting a Yard of the Week Award to the lovely gardens and landscapes in Blaine neighborhoods.
The committee is looking for nominations from the community for remarkable yards and gardens in Blaine. All types of gardening efforts including container gardens, flower boxes, vegetable gardens, rock or water gardens, or any type of landscaping that creates beauty visible from the street will be considered.
The committee will do a drive-by tour of the yards that are nominated to select the yard of the week.
Winners will be honored with a Blaine Yard of the Week sign, a certificate, and recognition in The Northern Light. The awards will be presented the first week of June through September. To nominate a yard or garden, contact Debbie Harger at Blaine city hall 360/543-9982 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
