CHRISTMAS LIGHTING CONTEST

To be considered for judging you must be registered. Deadline for entries is Monday, December 18, 2006. In past years it was not necessary to register, but with the growth of Monroe, it is now needed. There have been many worthy displays in the past few years, which were not registered. Help us make this a great holiday event by entering. The categories are: Entryway, Child’s Delight, Most Effective Use of Lights, and Business Display. To register to be entered in the judging, please call Anna Hale at 539-9813 or Madonna Krol at 539-7101. Prizes will be awarded and wooden Christmas trees will be placed on the lawn of the homeowner until January 2, 2007
