To the editor:
The Beautification Committee has designed two different contests for residents of Perth County in preparation for the 2013 International Plowing Match. The “Before and After” contest is county-wide. It includes those who are making major, permanent improvements to their property. The second contest is a decorating contest for Perth County residents who want to welcome visitors to the county with temporary displays.
Using their creativity and originality, the top properties will be based on these general guidelines: the idea of 100 years; the colours red, white, and black, and a farming/plowing theme. Judging for this contest will be separated into the four municipalities of Perth County, plus Stratford and St. Marys. Both contests will be judging the best rural, urban, and commercial properties.
Please see www.ipm2013.org for more information on entry deadlines and rules.
We are in the process of developing a Facebook page and Twitter account that will have the information as well.
The Church Service Community Choir is looking for Perth County residents who love to sing. Church choirs and community choirs will be contacted by letter later this year. For more information, please contact committee chair Barb Scherbarth at 519-348-4344, firstname.lastname@example.org.
