The Lexington Garden Club, organizers of the Best Decorated Yard contest, wants to urge residents to drive Wesley St. in the Brademan Addition. The residents of Wesley Street went all-out to make their yards and their street very pretty and worth the drive for anyone looking for some Christmas spirit.
