Editor, The Cheshire Herald:
Several Cheshire residents participated in the Cheshire Garden Club’s 66th Holiday Door Decorating Contest by entering their family’s or friend’s outdoor holiday display.
Our Club’s Civics Committee was faced with a daunting task of determining the winner in each of the six categories offered since the displays were just ever so artistic and creative and unique.
Judging took place during daylight hours. The judges had to travel to the far north region on either side of Route 10 close to Southington, then almost as far west as Waterbury and as far east as Meriden, then several streets closer to the center of town and then finally way down south near the Hamden town line.
Once the winners were notified, the owners were interviewed for a bit of background information; then a photo was taken with them amidst their lovely decorations and a short narrative composed for each display. At that time the runners-up were also notified.
Our thanks are extended to all those residents who entered our contest.
What was quite impressive this time around was The Cheshire Herald’s use of four media resources, to wit: displaying the winning photos and captions on their website, followed by their Facebook page, and finally a full-page display in their December 31, 2020 E-edition and their printed newspaper.
On behalf of the Cheshire Garden Club we extend our appreciation for the impressive publicity coverage provided to us.
