For the third year, the community of Eastman is celebrating the holidays with a Christmas decoration contest. All households in the village are eligible to participate. Homeowners can take a shot at putting up the best lights and decorations for a chance at winning prizes and the coveted trophy. There are no rules for decorating.
There is no cost to take part; entry forms are available at Captain’s Sports Bar. Forms were also delivered to every home in town recently.
Homes will be judged on Friday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. Lights and decorations must be up and running by that time. First, second and third prizes of Community Dollars will be awarded for the “Best Decorated.” The winner of the top prize will also take home a trophy provided by AAA Award, of Eastman.
The Eastman Community Club is sponsoring the Community Dollars, which are certificates that can be used to purchase merchandise or services at any of Eastman’s businesses.
