Heritage Christmas: Light It Up contest winners

Light it up

With some stiff competition in the mix, the 2020 Heritage Christmas Light It Up Contest, sponsored by Antrim Insurance Agency, Inc., has generated over $1,000 for the Greencastle-Antrim Food Pantry.

Each year the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce organizes the contest featuring entries by residents who decorate the exterior of their homes for the Christmas season. This year 16 homes in the Greencastle-Antrim area registered for the contest. It ran the first three weeks of December, ending last Sunday. Community members have been voting for their favorite home $1 per vote. In total, $1,034.00 dollars were raised.

“Driving around town to look at Christmas lights is a Christmas tradition many families enjoy year after year,” noted G-ACC Executive Director Valerie Meyers. “We’re so grateful for the many participants who decorated their homes; and to the community members who contributed funds by voting. It’s a fun and friendly competition for a worthy cause.”
