GREENFIELD — One local organization will recognize beautiful yards this summer.

Greenfield in Bloom, a nonprofit organization that also sees to flowers in sidewalk planters, hanging lamp post baskets and displays on the Hancock County Courthouse Plaza and square, will again conduct a door hanger effort recognizing beautiful front yards.

The 20-person committee that promotes beautification efforts throughout town, is delivering awards throughout the summer to 50 homeowners with the best-dressed front yards.

The awards – decorative door hangers – are left on doorknobs at home around the city to thank homeowners for the splendor their property contributes to the community.

In addition, the organization will recognize a Yard of the Month with a large sign marking the winner’s front yard as outstanding.
