2010 Holiday Lighting Contest Winners

by Lazybrook Civic Club - January 18th, 2011.
Filed under: Around the Neighborhood.

This year we had a lot of new participants to our neighborhood Holiday Lighting tradition.  It was great to see all of the new lights and decorations among the many others.  Everyone who takes the time to put up even the simplest strand of lights, or just the Christmas tree in the window deserves to be recognized for their work.

Some neighbors started before Thanksgiving getting their houses ready, so that on Thanksgiving night they were ready to flip the switch and light-up marking the beginning of the holiday season.  Others, like myself, waited until cold weather threatened, knowing the cold would have that numbing effect on my fingers, I had better get busy.

There were two categories where we have not had any homes to choose from for the last two years.

  1. Hanukkah – We would love to see your Hanukkah lights or Menorah in the window.
  2. Patriotic – Do we have any veterans, VFW members, parents, grandparents, or family members of those serving in our military?  If so, we would love to show you our neighborhood support too.

Once again Sharon Ettinger and I look forward to this time next year and giving our thoughts on the neighborhood holiday lights.  If you are marking you 2011 calendars, I am expecting judging to be 7:00 pm Tuesday night December 13, 2011.

Happy New Year!
