Gingerbread Contest, Caroling FunBy Sharon on October 29th, 2011
The winter season is rapidly approaching, and with it comes Lenox’s holiday festivities. This year, The Lenox Library is hosting the 7th Annual Gingerbread House Competition and Silent Auction on December 11, 1-3, as part of the Lenox Caroling Festival Weekend. Proceeds from the silent auction of the gingerbread houses will assist this non-profit organization in its efforts to bring books, information, and family events to downtown Lenox. (The library impacts visits to Lenox: over 13,000 people attended their summer events this past season alone.)
We would love to have families, groups, and individuals participate by creating a gingerbread house and entering it in the event. This year’s theme is “Storybook Houses.” Let your creativity soar! Make your house traditional, modern, or exotic. Houses will be voted on by our distinguished judges, and special awards will be voted on by your peers in categories such as “Best in Show,” “Most Unique,” “Best Theme,” and “Best Kids Creation.” Then the houses will be auctioned off silently, with proceeds to benefit the Library.
The holiday season is a time of sharing. This festive event is a way to be creative, feed your competitive side, and support your community. There will be prizes, refreshments, and a kid’s corner for creating on the spot. Please come for an afternoon of holiday fun and spirited competition or show your support by taking part in the silent auction.
If you wish to participate, please fill out the attached form and return it to the library as soon as possible, but no later than November 16. If you have any questions about the event or the library, please feel free to call Sharon at the library, 637-2630, x115.
