Middleport launches ‘Yard of the Week’

Staff Report

MIDDLEPORT — In an effort to help build a more “beautiful town” and increase community involvement, a group of volunteers and the Village of Middleport have implemented a “Yard of the Week” program.

Each week, yards in the village will be judged by an out of town judge based on categories which include yards, porches, entry ways, planter boxes or overall neatness.

From those, one yard will be selected each week as the village’s “Yard of the Week.” The winning yard will have a sign placed at their property for the week, as well as a picture taken with the sign.

Only properties within the village limits will be judged.

The program is being conducted at no cost to the village.
