Through this partnership, a yard will be chosen each month. The Yard of The Month then becomes the model yard of the neighborhood, encouraging others to follow the vision. By winning Yard of The Month, the recipient will be presented with an award and a neighborhood clean-up from a local organization. January campus clean up will be completed by Weaver Elites. The clean up will start on Laird Fletcher Road Jan. 23 starting at noon. The community is welcome to join. 
Sponsors are Law Offices of Howard E. Conday, Rhodes Realty, J.U.M.P. (Jesus Uses Me Personally) and The Natchitoches Times. Sponsorships are still available.  
Throughout the year if your eye catches a “stand out” yard you can send the address or pictures to Anna@ RhodesRealtyLA.com.
