Christmas Business Window Decorating Contest set

They are asking all downtown businesses to dress up the town in the Christmas spirit by decorating their windows and doors. First, second and third places will be awarded based on the use of lighting, window display and door weathers/swags in a festive Christmas scheme. To be judged, all businesses must be decorated by Nov. 29 for the Village Tree Lighting. Luke Johnson and the Art Club will judge the windows.
