As cooler temperatures have finally arrived on the south plains, have you noticed the lovely monarch butterflies migrating through Ransom Canyon? These beautiful creatures travel 3000 miles from Canada to Mexico each fall! For more information on their migration patterns, see this article. The POA Beautification Committee has chosen 2 lovely properties to recognize as "The Yard of the Month" in October: #74 Canyonview (Penny Golightly) and #92 S. Lakeshore Dr. (Ronnie & Joyce Hill).
