The North Shore Outdoor Circle keeps its eyes open for good landscaping and the people who keep the North Shore green and growing on their own.

Its annual beautification awards is one way to honor such efforts.

“Every year we select three residences and one business in the North Shore-Haleiwa area and give them an award at the Haleiwa Arts Festival,” said awards chairwoman Bonnie Archer.“We choose them based on landscaping of a yard that can be seen from the street. We pick folks that we think make it outstanding.”

The 2007 awardees were selected by a committee of Peggie Cutting, Carol Cashman, Pauline Standish and Archer for presentation at the July 21 festival.

McDonald’s of Haleiwa won the business category.“They showed an effort as they landscaped around the restaurant,” Archer said.

The four residential winners were Arthur Tanaka of Waialua, Mimi and Tak Sasaki of Haleiwa, Scott and Susan Valle of Waialua, and Joan Whitehead of Haleiwa (in memory of her husband Les).

The Circle also spreads around the greenery themselves. One of their recent projects was to add some shade to Kamananui Park in Waialua where five trees were planted with the help of the city.
