Decorating your home or business could make you a winner

The City of Walterboro’s Appearance Board is hoping to spread some Christmas cheer with this year’s Walterboro’s Holiday Home & Business Decorating Contest. Business Owners and Homeowners could win big this Christmas season if they come out on top of the annual contest. They are encouraging folks to pull out all the stops and allow those who live here as well as those who pass through during the joyous season to see how beautiful and festive Walterboro is, especially during the holiday season.
According to Dana Cheney, Chairman of The City Appearance Board, and the decorating contest, the only rule is homes and businesses must be located in the city limits. The group asks that those wishing to enter the contest upload a photo of their home or business to their facebook page: Holiday Home & Business Decorating Contest or email it to cleancitywalterboro@gmail.com. Businesses are asked to decorate their windows and outside of their businesses if there is room, and homeowners are asked to decorate the outside of their homes and yards. A people’s choice award will be given for the Business and residence that receives the most Facebook likes on their photo. The deadline for entering your home, property or business is December 24, 2019. A group of judges will then sit down and go over all the entries to pick the top three in both categories. Winners will be awarded an array of prizes that have been generously donated by local businesses. Last year folks earned gift certificates and prizes from Main Street Grill, The Old Bank, Barrel House Grill, the Chamber of Commerce, Louie’s Liquors, Wildflower Boutique, TWIG, and Consignment Envy.
Cheney, who normally focuses on city beautification projects, grants, and trash is once again excited about this year’s contest. “This will be the fourth year businesses have competed and the third for homeowners. I hope when people think of Walterboro they think about how beautiful and clean our city is and I hope they start to think about how beautiful our homes and businesses are decorated for Christmas. Whoever places this year will be able to enjoy prizes from businesses around Walterboro, and they will not be disappointed with any prize they may win,” said Cheney of the competition. Cheney went on to say he is looking forward to this contest taking off, and more and more homes and businesses participating each year. Winners of the contest will be listed on the contest Facebook page and will also be printed in this paper as soon as they are named, so stay tuned but meanwhile, decorate away! Winners will also be recognized at the first City Council meeting in January.
