Chamber Seeking Entries for Decorating Contest

The turkey wasn’t even cooled off yet and the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce officially kicked off the Christmas season with the traditional lighting of the community Christmas lights on November 27th.

Now the merchants group is striving to get the rest of town lit up in holiday fashion.

The annual MACC Christmas decorating contest is in full swing. Homeowners and businesses that are decorated for Christmas will have a chance to win a number of MACC prizes.

To enter the contest, sign up your home or business, your neighbor’s or nominate any other decorated site you feel deserves some recognition for its Christmas spirit. Sign up at the Memphis Democrat, call 660-465-7016 or send e-mail nominations to

First prize for the residential contest will be $80 in Memphis Bucks. Second prize pays $60 in chamber certificates redeemable at any MACC member and third prize is $40. The winner of the business division will receive a fruit basket.

The deadline to enter the contest is December 15th at 5:00 p.m. Judging will be completed Saturday evening, December 19th.
