Residents of the Town of Niagara can again win prizes for using flowers to beautify their front yards. The Town of Niagara Historical Society invites town residents to participate in Snapdragon Sunday on July 11.

On that afternoon, judges will drive by each participant's house, paying attention to the owner's choice of color of flowers and arrangement of planting, the use of birdhouses, birdbaths, or any other ornamentals, and the harmony between home and garden.  Judges will take into account only the front yard; they will not be walking on the property.

Prizes will be awarded for the most attractive yards later that afternoon between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. at the 1878 Schoolhouse on the corner of Lockport and Tuscarora roads. Homeowners need not be present to win.

Interested residents should submit an application by Thursday, July 1, so that judges will know which houses to view. Application forms and contest rules will be available at the Town of Niagara Town Hall and at the Schoolhouse on Sundays, June 20 and June 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. Previous winners are not eligible for prizes.

Residents with beautiful front yards last year were Almeda Grandusky of 8120 E. Britton Drive; Debra Bauer, 81 Expressway Village; and Gerald and Barbara Hathaway of 7030 Colonial Drive.
