Yard of the Month - July

Joe and Kelly Gookin have a beautiful yard in Russell and consequently they won the Russell Yard of the Month for July.  The grass and the flowers look like a professional gardener has designed and manicured them.  Beautiful colors are arranged around the base of the house, with purple Clematis Plants climbing up the wooden porch on the east side.  You can see this display at 201 W. Ames St. in Russell, next door to last month's winners, Ron and Robin Thompson.

We had a terrible storm come through our area a couple of weeks ago and it is good to see so many of our neighbors and friends out cleaning up the broken tree branches and the damage done by this storm.  Russell residents are proud of their little town and have shown it by working hard on their yards.
