If you need a sign that the holiday season is upon us, here’s one word: gingerbread.
Visit the Chamber office (215 Main Street) Monday or Tuesday (November 19-20). You’ll be given a name and location of your “business host.”
You’ll have a week to decorate the house. (This being Thanksgiving week, it’s either a terrible time, or a way to keep kids busily occupied.)
Completed houses should be delivered to “the designated business/merchant” by Sunday, November 25. There will be a jar for votes — with ballots cast by pennies.
A portion of the funds raised benefit Staples Tuition Grants and Toys for Tots. (Did I mention there are entry fees? $75 for Professional category; $50 for Adult; $25 for Youth/Family.)
Sounds complicated, I know.
But win or lose, you support Westport business and 2 great organizations.
Plus, win or lose, you’ll end up with a wonderful doorstop.
