Senior Sunflower Contest to begin

Thursday, April 29, 2021

Ace Hardware, The Laurel Outlook and the Laurel Senior Citizen Center are jointly sponsoring a sunflower contest for Seniors (60 and up) who live in the 59044 zip code area to see who can grow the tallest flower by the end of August.

In order to enter the contest, Seniors must call Ace Hardware at 628-8276 between May 1 and June 1, and ask for Heather. She will get seniors registered or return messages to register those interested. A representative from the Senior Center or one from Ace will telephone contestants at the end of June, July and August, to arrange to photograph each entrant and their sunflower, and measure each plant at the end of August.

The photos will be posted by The Laurel Outlook each month on their website and Facebook page. The photos will also be posted at Ace and the Senior Center. The prizes are for first, second and third place. The Senior Center is offering cash prizes of $75, $50 and $25. Ace will offer prizes of equal value but in gardening merchandise. At the end of the contest, The Laurel Outlook will publish a photo of the winning contestant and their sunflower. Get growing!
