Applewood Park Lovely Yard Contest

“Some People look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful”

Hazrat Inayat Khan

To celebrate summer, the Applewood Park Community Association is hosting a ‘Lovely Yard’ Contest. If you think you’ve got the best yard in the neighbourhood, show it off by sending in your photo submission. And if you have a neighbour that also works hard on their landscaping, nominate them too! This contest runs from now through to the end of August. Photos will be judged and winners will be hand picked by the APCA volunteer Board. Top 3 get the grand prizes and number of any runners up will be determined by the number of entrants.

Submissions will be judged on criteria such as 40% aesthetics of yard design, 30% creativity and 30% personality. The entries with the highest total score will be deemed finalists and proceed to a voting phase. In the event of a tie, an additional, “tie-breaking” judge will determine the finalists.

We can’t wait to see the photos of your beautiful properties. Thanks for all working so hard to do your part keeping Applewood beautiful!

Note, you can make multiple submissions if you end up improving on your yard throughout the summer, however only the last submission you make will be considered for judging.

Thank Your Neighbour 2020

Thank Your Neighbour for Neighbour Day 2020!

“Times like this, even though tragic and devastating, bond us together as neighbors.” – Jerry Reed-

One way the APCA is recognizing Neighbour Day this year is by allowing all Applewood residents the opportunity to send out a big THANK-YOU to the awesome people in our neighbourhood who deserve it most!

Did one of your neighbours shovel your walk last winter, help you track down your escape-artist cat or check your mail while you were on vacation? Let them know they are appreciated with a personalized thank you note — hand delivered by your APCA volunteers to your neighbour’s mailbox on Neighbour Day.  Tell us in the box below why your neighbour deserves a big THANK-YOU!

Thank you notes will be delivered by your local APCA volunteers to your neighbour’s mailbox on Neighbour Day, June 20th. The thank you notes will also be shared on our Facebook page (we will blur all names & addresses to protect everyone’s privacy).

Submissions are due Saturday, June 13, 2020 (one week before Neighbour Day).

PS: If you include your name below, we will assume you are giving the APCA permission to include your name on the thank you note so your neighbour knows who you are.

The form is currently closed.
