The Property Owners’ Association of the Garden City Estates announces that it will be awarding the 2021 Yuter-Newman Estates POA Scholarship and that applications are now available. The scholarship is named in honor of Mort Yuter and Jerie Newman, past presidents of the Estates POA, both of whom exemplified the very best in civic spirit and dedication.
