Front yard category added to Fall Fair

This fall there will be a new set of entries in the Fall Fair.

Dear Editor:

This fall there will be a new set of entries in the Fall Fair.

We hope that as many people as possible will consider entering the new Front Yard Category.

Martens Orchard is offering the following prizes: First prize Best Front Yard, $100; second prize Best Front Yard, $50; first prize Best Eco-Friendly Front Yard, $50; second prize Best Eco-Friendly Front Yard, $25.

Persons interested in entering these two categories will be asked to submit four by six inch (or larger) photos of their yards at least two weeks prior to Fall Fair so that judges will be able to make comparisons of the entries by observing first hand all entrant’s yards.

There is still plenty of time to get started or to make changes to make your front yards more attractive.

Further details will be available from either the Fall Fair Committee or phone Frank at 494-4666.

Frank Martens
