Smallidge family takes home first in Christmas Light Contest
The votes have been tallied, and the winner of the 2014 Kiwanis Club of New Richmond Christmas Light Contest is the Smallidge family, who lives at 315 Greaton Rd. The Smallidges will receive a $100 Chamber Bucks card for placing first in the contest. Judging was done on Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Runners up include: second place, Dan Moe at 242 W. Sixth St. ($75 Chamber Bucks); third place, the Becker family at 1321 Bilmar Ave. ($50 Chamber Bucks); fourth place, the Gubrud family at 652 E. Second St. ($25 Chamber Bucks); and fifth place, the Dennis family at 1914 W. Seventh St. ($25 Chamber Bucks).
The judges for the contest included all of the group’s newest members, all but one of their board members and a combined total of 90 years representing the Kiwanis Club of New Richmond.
The group started at Champs with some social time on Dec. 16 and then split up in to four groups with maps in hand. The weather cooperated for the judging and the group had a wonderful time. The club raised the prize amounts this year and kept all six places to keep encouraging participation.
Kiwanis Club of New Richmond is also celebrating its 95th Anniversary this year.
