CHRISTMAS YARD OF THE MONTH DECORATING CONTEST WINNERS Wow! This year we had a great time with our annual Christmas Holiday Yard contest. For the first time instead of letting one or two Board members make the decision we passed it on to you, our residents. The Board judges made an initial selection of the ten, which they considered to be most deserving of recognition. From these, all residents who had registered their emails on our website and were therefore on our emailing list were invited to select which one they viewed as having the best display. The yard that received the most votes was recognized as taking first place with the two runners up taking second and third places. And what a great response we had! As a result of the enthusiasm for this vote many residents who were not previously on our mailing list decided to register, which has resulted in our list now passing the 600 mark. And of all those on So what was the result? Mary Ann and Wegin Ng of 22434 Bucktrout came out ahead by a narrow margin so their home took first place These three homes had the corresponding award signs placed in their yard where they will remain throughout the month. But let’s not forget the remaining seven that made the initial list. These were: 1718 Prince George Ct 1811 Abby Aldrich 22202 Unicorns Horn Lane 22303 Bucktrout 22339 N Rebecca Burwell 22402 Wetherburn 22535 Unicorns Horn And we hope that the residents who made an effort but didn’t make the list will not feel discouraged. Let’s remember that the reason for the Christmas displays is to celebrate the birth of Christ and everyone who put out lights and decorations should feel pride in having made the effort. The contest is just a fun way to help celebrate the season and hopefully will encourage even more of us to join in the celebration next year! The Board was delighted with the response and thanks all who participated in this fun event and hopes that you and your families enjoyed being able to have your voice heard in the selection of this year’s winners. 2 February 2018 | Community Newsletter
