Gingerbread House Winners Announced!
The Chamber Children’s Fund wishes to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Gingerbread House Contest. We have over a dozen entries this year and the competition was fierce in several categories. Houses were judged on craftsmanship, originality, creativity, degree of difficulty and overall appearance. Ribbons were awarded in each of the six categories: Child, Youth Group, Adult, Family, Adult Group, and Professional.
In addition to the individual winners, the public voted for their favorite house during Holiday Open House on December 1st. The Camiere’s Christmas Cottage took home top honors as the “People’s Choice” Award winner and received $100 in Exeter Area Gift Certificates.
The Chamber Children’s Fund raises funds each year to provide warm winter clothing and bedding to needy children within the 10 communities the Chamber serves. The money is raised through generous donations from individual and area companies and through various fund-raisers such as the Gingerbread House Contest, Kandlepins for Kids, Festival of Trees, and our school campaigns called Kids Helping Kids. For more information contact Lynn Dow at the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce at (603) 772-2411 or to donate on line visit: www.firstgiving.com/ChamberChildrensFund.
