Fond du Lac County seeking nominations for landscaping beautification awards | News
Do you look forward to seeing your neighbor’s garden grow and bloom every year? Have you ever driven past a courtyard and the landscaping made you want to take a double shot? Have you seen beautiful rain gardens, prairie plantings or carefully tended ornamental gardens?
If so, the Fond du Lac County wants you to nominate them for a makeover award.
Beautification through landscaping and the beautification of outdoor facilities are the focus of this award. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, July 23rd.
There are numerous ways to submit a nomination:
Call the county clerk office at (920) 929-3000
Submit a written nomination to Beautification Awards, County Clerk’s Office, PO Box 1557, Fond du Lac, WI 54936-1567
Include your name, phone number, and email address, as well as the name, address, and phone number / email address or website of the nominated site.
Provide the nominee’s contact information; it will be easier to contact them about their award.
Fond du Lac County’s Natural Beauty Council members will tour the nominated sites in early August. The prizes will be presented at an autumn meeting of the Fond du Lac District Board of Directors. The winners will receive a plaque for the Fond du Lac County Beautification Award.
Area 4-H clubs can be nominated for planting flowers and shrubs. You will receive a gift certificate.
