While 2020 has definitely been a year of frustration for all of us, we wanted to do something to bring some joy and excitement back into our community. So, beginning this month our office, Gateway Properties, is going to start sponsoring a “Yard of the Month” program. Because your yard itself won’t look it’s best at this time of the year, we’re going to have our judges calculate points based on yard decorations as well. They will choose 3-5 yards each month. The judges will be different people throughout Independence County. So, you don’t have to live in Batesville for your yard to be chosen.
Our plan is to have the yards selected by the 7th of each month so that the signs can be placed in the yards for 3 out of the 4 weeks of the month. We’re so excited to announce that our first contest will be in November. So, get those doors, porches, and yards looking very “Fallish”! The winning yards will have signs placed in their yards and they will be posted on this Blog as well as on our Facebook page. (If you haven’t already liked and followed us, please do so!) We’ll also be featuring the winning yards on our page in the monthly Home Magazine that is distributed all around Independence County. Tell your family, tell your friends! And, if you see a yard you think is award worthy just leave us a message on Facebook, text us, or call our office at (870) 793-8100. Check back around November 8th to see who our first lucky winners will be!
