Congrats go to Carlene & Jay Newton for being selected for the June Yard of the Month. With hibiscus and petunias in full bloom as well as numerous other plant species, their yard is beautifully hopping with the bright colors of summer. Their efforts at "Making a Difference" are very much appreciated.

The goal of the Yard of the Month program is to recognize the efforts of residents who take pride in their landscaping - inspiring others to do the same.

Nominations for the July yard of the month are being accepted and need to be turned in to the Chamber office by July 31.

On hand to present the sign were Donnie Crain, president of Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and Louise Templin with the Garden Club and the Chamber's Beautification Committee.
