Entries requested for decorating contest

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

It is time again for Putnam County residents to break out the lights, wreaths, bows, and plastic Santas and get busy decorating their front yards, porches, driveways and rooftops. Not only will it brighten up the neighborhood and show off holiday spirit, but it may also earn you a $100, $50 or $25 Wal-Mart Gift Certificate.

The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce and Wal-Mart Store #902 are once again sponsoring the 2008 Putnam County "Home for the Holidays" Lawn Decorating Contest. Residents can enter by returning the entry form to the Chamber of Commerce office at 16 S. Jackson Street Greencastle (or faxing it to 765-848-1015) by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Once entered in the contest, residents must have their homes decorated and ready for judging on Monday, Dec. 15 so that a panel of judges will be able to observe them from December 15 through 17. Lights will need to be turned on by 5 p.m. on those nights and left on until 10 p.m.

Winners will be announced in the Banner Graphic. The contest is open to all county residents. If you have any questions, call the Chamber office at 653-4517.
