Chamber calls for noms for holiday decorating contest

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

The Shelbyville-Bedford County Chamber of Commerce is organizing its second annual holiday decorating contest.

Anyone can nominate a residential home in Bedford County they feel has gone above and beyond with their outdoor Christmas decorations.

Nominations must be turned in by Dec. 9 to the Chamber and should include the name, address and phone number of the family they're nominating. Nominations may be turned in by regular mail (Chamber of Commerce, 100 N. Cannon Blvd.), fax (931-684-3483), in person or by email (bedfordchamber@bellsouth.net).

The Times-Gazette will publish a list of all nominees for anyone wishing to do a local tour of decorations to enjoy. Winners' photos will also appear in the paper.

"A member of the Beautification Committee came up with the idea last year, and we put it together pretty quickly," said Ann Farrar, on behalf of the Chamber. "This year we're starting a little earlier and have a little more organization."

Last year, the Chamber received 22 nominations.

Judging will take place Dec. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m.

For more information, call the Chamber at (931) 684-3482.
