November’s Yard of the Month winner is Sari Reingold, pictured with Staci Alsover (L) and Tara Matthews (R). Reingold received a gift basket from First Family Credit Union as well as a gift certificate from Cave’s Jewelry. “What a nice surprise,” Reingold said when she was notified. The Yard of the Month committee, consisting of Staci Alsover, Tara Matthews, Bruce Jones and Ashley Wolstoncroft chose Reingold’s yard for its cleanliness and eye-appeal. “It’s really pretty and I can’t believe you still have flowers,” Alsover told her. Yard of the Month winners are chosen at the end of each month. During the holiday season, decorations will be included in the consideration, so be on the lookout for Christmas displays. Individuals can send their nominations to the editor at ashley@bigbasinllc.com or call 652-3311. Families are permitted to nominate their own yards.
