Don and Melissa Lewis’ home at 299 Wayfare Lane

Our judge, property manager Anna Hornstein, admitted that she had a hard time picking a winner. There were “lots of homes to choose from,” she said. Anna got some help from our HOA board members after giving them four nominees to choose from.

This was the first year that a home on Wayfare Lane won the prize. Previous awards were given to homes on Wayside and Willow Cove.

Thanks also to Megan Wildenstein for decorating the entrances to the subdivision. Take some time during one of our nice evenings to walk or drive around the neighborhood to see what a fantastic job was done this year.
