April 2016 Winner

Greetings Neighbors! This month, one of our neighbors nominated a Board member's yard for review. Per our rules, Board members are eligible when NON-Board members nominate them and a when a group of NON-board member judges choose their yard. We would like to thank the following homeowners for judging this month's Yard-of-the-Month: Buddy Keister, D.j. Whitmore, Tristan Bennett Bailey, Jamie Graybill, and Bob and Jan Moore.

We would like to congratulate our Vice President, Patrick, and his wife, Denise, for being chosen as April's Yard-of-the-Month winners! Great job at keeping Sisson Meadows beautiful!

Thank you neighbors for all of your help this month!

It's official!!

Attention everyone...We have ourselves a Yard-of-the-Month Program! Thanks to Maronda Homes for their GENEROUS donation!! The Board is EXCITED about this program! We have so many beautiful yards in Sisson Meadows and it is time you are recognized for your hard work!! The program will begin March 2016.

Each year, the program will run March-December. From March-September, the candidates will be judged on the beauty of their yard (see official rules for details) and October-December, we will judge your Holiday decorations after sundown. Each winner will receive a Yard-of-the-Month sign (to be returned once the next month's winner is selected), a $25 Visa Gift card, an honorable mention in the newsletter and a photo of you and your yard will be uploaded to our website. All YOTM winners will be automatically entered into a drawing that will be held at the annual meeting, at which time the YARD OF THE YEAR winner will be selected. This winner will receive a $100 Visa Gift card and a Yard of the Year sign to be placed in your yard. You can opt not to keep the sign all year, but you should display it proudly!! You deserve it! In order to win the Yard of the Year grand prize, all candidates MUST BE PRESENT at the annual meeting (or submit their proxy). Simple right?! YAY!

We are asking everyone to send us their nominations for the yard they believe is the most beautiful by the third week of each month.  The winner will be selected the last week of each month or as close to it as possible. If no submissions are made from neighbors, the Landscaping Committee will pick a few homes to be judged. The Board will pick the winner (unless a Board Member's yard has been submitted; see details in official rules) and the Landscaping Committee Chair, Patrick Fay, will notify the winner. You can only win ONCE per season.

Good luck to all of you!! We can't wait to see your beautiful yards!!
