The rain has finally stopped for now, and it seems as though everything in Port Huron is in full bloom. Yards, gardens, flowers, and trees have all come to life. Maybe there’s a yard in your neighborhood that stands out and is deserving of recognition. Or, maybe there’s a business that you frequent or a nonprofit that you work with. As you come across these places in your travels be sure to take note of the extra special care they give to their outdoor greenery. How about giving them a little extra credit. The City of Port Huron is beginning to take nominations for the Yard of the Year Contest. Brought to you by the Beautification Commission, the deadline for submission of a nominee is July 15. Nominations can be submitted by filling out a nomination form on the City of Port Huron’s website. Winners will be notified at the end of July.
