New Salem's Yard of the Week
The "Yard of the Week" recognition began in 2010 as an attempt to appreciate the beautiful summer yards in the city of New Salem.  A "Yard of the Week" sign is placed in the designated yard for one week from Monday to Sunday. An announcement and photos of the yard appear in the New Salem Journal each week. The campaign begins the first week of July and ends the first week of September. The judges are anonymous, change annually and are not members of the Betterment Committee. Committee member's yards are not eligible for yard of the week. 
 
We encourage all the citizens of New Salem to add to the beauty and welcoming appearance of our community by keeping their yards clean and neat. Our intention is not so much to designate the most beautiful yards each year, but to appreciate the variety of yards and the effort made to make the yards pleasing and eye-catching. There are many wonderfully beautiful and well kept yards in New Salem. There are so many, in fact, that we have yet to repeat.
 
Anyone is welcome to assist the Committee by nominating a yard. Notify a committee member and the information will be passed on to the judges for consideration.
