The Compass - - THE COMPASS -

Beau­ti­ful green lawns, ar­bors and benches were some of the high­lights of Car­bon­ear’s sec­ond an­nual Best Car­bon­ear Gar­den Con­test.

Be­tween June and Au­gust gar­dens and lawns were nom­i­nated and judged on their aes­thetic ap­peal.

In a sur­pris­ing con­clu­sion, two of the top hon­ours were awarded as a tie.

First place went to Agnes and Kevin For­ward of Long’s Hill and Baden and Genevieve His­cock of For­ward’s Lane.

Gra­ham and Angie Pike of Bunker Hill took home the sec­ond place award.

There was also a tie for third. Shirley Shea of Drake’s Hill and Corinne Wright of Win­ter Place shared that hon­our.

“All of the gar­dens were beau­ti­ful and re­flected the ded­i­ca­tion and green thumbs of own­ers,” wrote spe­cial events com­mit­tee mem­ber Judy Cameron. “Judges had great dif­fi­cult dif­fi­culty se­lect­ing the win­ners.”

The awards were pre­sented at the Sept. 9 coun­cil meet­ing.
