GALLIPOLIS — Despite the holiday season coming to a close, the lights are still aglow in Gallipolis and not just at City Park.
Winners of the first Light Up the Town decorating contest have been announced, with residents securing prizes and bragging rights for the year.
Light Up the Town is the name of the inaugural lighting contest sponsored by the Gallipolis Junior Women’s Club and supported by area businesses with gift cards offered as prizes for those homes and businesses who were chosen as winners of the contest. The “town” in the contest was Gallipolis, though an opportunity for those who live out in the county was available via a People’s Choice winner category.
According to the contest organizers, the following winners were chosen by the Light Up the Town committee and were presented by the Gallipolis Junior Women’s Club. All winners received an official yard sign, a free turkey from Piggly Wiggly, a $25 Zach and Scotty’s gift certificate, and, as mentioned above, bragging rights for the year.
