It is time to get your nominations in for the third annual City of Rhinelander Yard of the Month contest! This summer program will honor two winners during the months of June, July and August.
The purpose for the Yard-of-the-Month Awards is simply to inspire residents to maintain attractive and appealing front, side, and rear yards throughout the Rhinelander community. We believe that an element of friendly competition will enhance the sense of community pride that has existed in Rhinelander for many years.
The two categories for yards include a Traditional Yard and Blooming Yard. Both categories require homeowners to be in good standing with the City of Rhinelander and have no code violations with the City or County Government. Homes must be located within the city limits of Rhinelander to be eligible to participate. The Traditional Yard of the Month will be given to a well-manicured and attractive looking yard. The Blooming Yard of the Month needs to meet the same requirements, but also have an element of flowers, shrubs and other items to make the yard distinct and unique. Winners will receive a $50 credit to be applied to their water bill from the City of Rhinelander.
Nominations for the City of Rhinelander Yard of the Month may be submitted to the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce either by phone (715) 365-7464 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must be submitted to the Chamber by Friday June 22 to be considered for the June prize. The Master Gardeners of the North will provide the judging committee each month.
If you have any questions or need more information, call the Rhinelander Chamber. This program is sponsored by the City of Rhinelander, Master Gardeners of the North and the Rhinelander Chamber.
