Beautiful front yard contest held in Cache Creek

Cache Creek Communities in Bloom initiates a beautiful front yard contest, with judging on July 8.

The Cache Creek Communities in Bloom Committee is holding a Cache Creek Front Yard beautification award program this year and also an award program for businesses.

Judging will take place on Monday, July 8, and will include all properties inside the village limits so there is no need to enter ahead of time.

Judges will be touring Cache Creek looking for winners in both categories. The judges are invited by the Communities In Bloom Committee and are from Clinton and Cache Creek. They will select the top 20 residential front yards and the top 10 businesses for recognition, as well as a top three in each category.

The judges will be looking for tidiness, overall design and attractiveness, maintenance, and plantings including floral displays.  All properties within the village limits will be judged.

Winners will be contacted following the judging in person or by phone, and awards will be handed out Sunday, July 14 at 7:30 pm at the Cache Creek Pool 40th anniversary party by the guest Communities in Bloom Provincial Judges.

See Vicky Trill to enter the Amazing Race that will be included in this event, and come down for the Water Show at the pool that will start immediately following the ribbon cutting at 7:30 pm that evening.

The official judge’s tour of Cache Creek,  including the golf course, downtown core, park, community hall, landfill, and Village Office will also include residential properties occurs Monday July 15. So tidy up your yards and streets and make Cache Creek look her best.
