Once again, the Elmwood Homecoming Committee 2014 is hosting a Beautification Contest for the residents of Elmwood and surrounding rural routes. We are asking you to help us make our village proud to welcome back our friends and family to celebrate.
ALL RESIDENTS MUST REGISTER TO PARTICIPATE BEFORE AUGUST 1ST, 2014
At time of registration, please include name and address, as well as the category (include kids names in that category). Rural residents, please include your fire number. In town residents, specify where your garden is (front/back yard).
JUDGING WILL TAKE PLACE BETWEEN AUG 11-15!
GRAND DESIGN - this should incorporate the Homecoming colours (green, white and black), be welcoming and inviting to visitors.
BEE FRIENDLY - this would be a poolinator garden, which would include a continuous source of food and habitat for bees, birds and butterflies. (Any questions regarding this type of garden, please contact Verna Beckenhauer at 519-363-5922.)
KIDS - this is the chance for children to impress the judges using their gardening abilities. They may use flowering plants, vegetable plants, their own design, garden accessories, etc. Consider using an old bike, wagon, pumpkins, your imagination!
WATER - this would include a water feature of some sort and may include fish, frogs and/or flowers. Size may vary.
