Nominate a Great Yard in 2010 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Yard of the Month program has returned for 2010. We would like any residents in Grogans's Mill to tell us who they feel has the nicest yard. You can suggest a neighbor's home or your own. It would help if you would include some digital photos (photos are not nessary) Please note only the front and side of yards that visible from the street are needed. The committee will look at nominated yards & homes and select the winner for each month. The winner will get a $50 gift certificate to a store of their choice in the Grogan's Mill Shopping Center.

To nominate a yard, please include this information:
Home owner(s)
Home address and neighborhood
Your phone number
Your reason for the nomination
Pictures (digital) to support the nomination if possible
E-mail nominations or questions about Yard of the Month to: webmaster@grogansmillvillage.com

April Yard of the Month Winners Announced ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Stan & Ellen Ericksen are April's winners for Yard of the month. Stan and Ellen Ericksen have lived in their home in Grogan's Mill for 16 years and enjoy working in their yard. Their hard work really shows with the beautiful display of plantings of Amaryllis, Society Garlic, Mums, Ferns and Red Photinias all of which are bordered by landscaping rocks. They have other plants which bloom at different times of the year. Their home is surrounded by several well maintained trees. They say they are pleasantly surprised and honored to receive this award and will display the "Yard Of The Month Sign" with pride. Congratulations to them.

Would You Like to be an Emergency Responder? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Each Woodlands Village has a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Held at The Woodlands Emergency Training Center over an eight-week period, the Woodlands CERT course is taught by a team of expert first responders with a full-scale disaster simulation exercise conducted at graduation. Classes meet one night a week for three hours with most sessions involving practical exercises as well as classroom instruction.

For more information or to register for CERT, please e-mail Woodlands-CERT@att.net, go to http://www.thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov/index.aspx?nid=590 or call the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management at 936-523-3903.
