Hello all! Happy Spring!

The LMSP would like to make you aware of scheduled community events and happenings that will be taking place over the next few months. This is also a reminder that May has officially been proclaimed by both the Village and Town Boards as "Clean Up, Fix Up, and Paint Up Month". This promotion encourages all Lyons property owners to take pride in community and pride of ownership. Spruce up so we'll all look good for summer visitors!
 
To coincide with the "Clean Up, Fix Up, and Paint Up Month" promotion, the LMSP is awarding "Thumbs Up!" certificates to those Lyons neighbors and businesses that show pride of community and ownership by maintaining their residence or business to reflect their pride. This is one way all Lyonites can say “Thank you!” for making Lyons a great place to live. Only Lyons' residents may nominate a fellow Lyons neighbor or business for “Thumbs Up!” recognition and the person (or persons) nomination of a fellow resident or business will remain anonymous. You can nominate someone by contacting the Lyons Main Street Program at 315-871-4220 or via email. Know someone that always keeps their property neat and tidy? Has a neighbor recently painted the trim on the house or planted a new flower bed? Nominate them for a “Thumbs Up!” certificate. All certificates are hand delivered and as a further acknowledgement, a complete listing of all Thumbs Up award winners will be publicly listed in early June.
   
To make Lyons look its patriotic best, the LMSP is offering quantity discounts on USA made bunting for dressing Lyons up for summer. Bunting is a traditional way to greet summer visitors and the quantity pricing lowers with the more units ordered. The LMSP will be happy to coordinate the purchase and distribute as they come in. A three stripe pleated flag (#PFF-318 - red white and blue stripes - 18" X 36", cotton w/ hanging grommets) is as low as $3.50 each with an order of 24 or more and the five stripe (#PFF-501, with stars - same size, poly blend w/ hanging grommets) are $4.50 each with an order over 6 units. The cost of shipping will be split among those participating. They may be viewed at this link - http://www.quinnflags.com/products.asp?CatId=6&SubCatId=35&CategoryName=Pleated+Patriotic+Fans

Last year brought out the craftier side of business windows and homes alike with clever decorative representations. Last year's 1st place home owner was The Pullen Residence at 69 Cherry Street and the 1st place business went to the Wayne County employees that decorated the windows at the Park Bakery Building.
