Masset winners announced

  • Jan. 16, 2006 8:00 a.m.

It was a dark, wet and stormy night but the Christmas Decorating Contest went on.
A panel of judges from GM Dawson Secondary School: Courtenay Hudebine, Amanda Barron, Kylie Thorgeirson and Leigh-Anna Jones volunteered and spent a couple of hours looking intently at the brightly lit homes and buildings in Masset. They based their decisions on colourful lights and decorations, traditional or contemporary themes, creativity and effort used in putting it all together. After 45 minutes of careful deliberation — and it was not easy as there were so many wonderfully decorated homes – -the winners were announced
1st prize: 1823 Collison Avenue
2nd Prize: 1270 Wilson Street
3rd Prize: 2058/2060 Maple Crescent

Honourable Mentions:
1913 Brant Crescent
2183 Collison Avenue
