Once again the Morning Glory Garden Club is delighted to continue its Christmas tradition of selecting the best traditional and novelty lighting and best decorated business window.
The traditional award and $100 from the Garden Club was presented to the downtown Veterans Park for its stunning new display of lighting features. Included are large lighted ball ornaments hanging from trees, as well as situated on the lawn, lighted deer and garland-draped gazebo with a bench on which to cozy up under twinkling stars. Sincere thanks to everyone involved in creating such a magnificent centerpiece this year to showcase our downtown area.
The novelty award and $100 given by the City of McKenzie was presented to Mason and Lauren Powers at 155 Blackburn Avenue for their striking lawn display of lights, music and holiday décor, including a charming nativity scene, a moving boat filled with holiday characters, snowmen, lighted candy canes, Santa making his way to the roof and so much more! Do drive by to see this wonderland. It will bring out the child in all of us.
The best decorated business window and $50 from the Garden Club was awarded to the newly-relocated City Florist at 2281 Cedar Street. Their many windows are filled with exquisitely-decorated Christmas trees. At the Cedar Street entrance, Santa is seen just inside waiting to greet you. At the back entrance, an antique red truck with decorated cart is parked by the cheerful welcoming “porch.” Owners Michele and David Jarrett invite you to stop in and say hello.
The Morning Glory Garden Club would like to thank the winners for their participation in this year’s events and to everyone in town who decorated their homes and businesses to make our community more festive and beautiful for this joyful season!
Merry Christmas to all from the Morning Glory Garden Club!
