Citizens of Putnam County are invited to get out their lights, wreaths, bows, and plastic Santa's and get busy decorating their front yards, porches, and driveways.
The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce and the Greencastle Super Wal-Mart are sponsoring the 2007 Home for the Holidays Lawn Decorating Contest.

Once entered, residents must have their lawns decorated by Monday, Dec. 10 so that the Chamber's panel of judges will be able to view the decorations from Dec. 11-14. Lights need to be turned on by 5 p.m. and if possible left on until 10 p.m. on those nights.
Contestants will be judged on Originality, Continuity of Theme, Preparation and Effort, and the "Spirit of Christmas." Wal-Mart gift cards will be given to first, second and third place entries. For information, call the Chamber at 653-4517.
