Do you or one of your neighbors take phenonimal care of the yard?
Are the flowers blooming, bushes trimmed, yard nicely landscaped and manicured?
Beautiful yards are not only pleasing to the eye but help us maintain our property values in Orange Hunt. They also help us take great care of mother nature and her creatures.

The OHECA Board has decided to hold a contest and to award prizes for these great efforts. First prize $100, second prize $50 and third prize $25.

You may nominate yourself, nominate a neighbor or nominate a property within Orange Hunt that, in your judgement, goes above and beyond!  We will run this contest until the end of June.  Send all nominations to  Please make sure to include an explanation as to ‘why’ you selected this property.

We will announce the winners in early July!!
