The SFCC Yard of the Month Contest has presented some hard choices for the judges that are involved in the contest. With so many beautiful yards to look at each month, judges face a difficult task of choosing a winner from each section of the neighborhood. Judging of yards is being done on the second weekend of every month and will continue throughout the summer.
Winners are recognized at the Shepherd Forest Civic Club meetings on the third Monday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Garden Oaks Baptist Church. Many thanks go to ALL residents who maintain their yards and keep our neighborhood looking so beautiful!
