This year’s recipient of the Grangeville Garden Club’s “Good Neighbor Award” is Helen Nuxoll of Cottonwood, whose yard you’ll easily identify along North Street. No doubt, anyone who lays eyes on her yards reaps benefits from the hours of labor she has devoted to her gardening. Shown are local members with Helen, left to right: Barb Jones, Helen, Roberta Crea and Betty Johnson. Some past recipients include Marilyn Becker, Viola Nuxoll and Kenny Pepper.
