There is a certain pride that many homeowners take in the maintenance and appearance of their properties. But others take it to a much higher level.
This year's "Pride in Our Homes Contest," sponsored by the Greater Fairfield Board of Realtors, recognized examples of home ownership and improvement in Fairfield that rise to that high level. The 25th annual contest was open to any property owner in town, with nominations via forms available in garden centers and public places. Media sponsors were the Fairfield Citizen and Hearst Media Services.
