Chamber, Walmart sponsor holidays decorating contest

Monday, November 14, 2011

It is again time for citizens of Putnam County to break out the lights, wreaths, bows and plastic Santas and get busy decorating their front yards, porches and driveways for the holidays.

Not only will it brighten up the neighborhood and show some holiday spirit, but it may also earn a Walmart gift card up to $100 in value.

The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce and Super Walmart are again sponsoring the Putnam County Home for the Holidays Lawn Decorating Contest.

Residents can enter by filling out and returning the entry form to the Chamber of Commerce office at 16 S. Jackson St., Greencastle or by faxing it to 848-1015 by 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9.

Once entered, residents must have their homes decorated by Monday, Dec. 12. Judging will take place between Tuesday, Dec. 13 and Thursday, Dec. 15. Lights need to be turned on for judging between the hours of 5 and 10 p.m. each of those evenings.

Contestants will be judged on originality, continuity of theme, preparation and effort and the "Spirit of Christmas." Winners will be announced in the Banner Graphic, Hoosier Topics and on WREB 94.3 FM.

The first place winner will receive a $100 Walmart Gift Card, second place a $50 Walmart Gift Card and third place a $25 Walmart Gift Card.

The contest is open to all homes in Putnam County. Anyone with questions may call Tammy Amor at 653-4517.

  • The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce should change its name to something else. Reminds me too much of that foul US Chamber of Commerce.
