Inke Baker, the president and CEO of the Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce said she wanted to remind everyone to nominate a house that can win the first place prize in the chamber's 2013 Christmas House Lighting Contest.
"People begin decorating just before Thanksgiving and over the next week or so. We want everyone to see Lehigh glitter and our judges will make the rounds of those homes that are nominated on Dec. 12 with a list of them published in The Citizen on Dec. 18.
"Nominate your own home, your neighbor's home or one you see while driving around. Consider its theme, the lighting and other reasons you may like it," Baker said.
Then to nominate a place, contact the chamber. Email your nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stop in the chamber and give them the name on a sheet of paper of a particular house and its address. The office is in the Lehigh Town Center on the corner of Alabama and Homestead roads.
The Greater Lehigh Chamber of Commerce is the official Christmas season holiday contest held in Lehigh. Prizes will be given away. Judges will ride in a bus and select the top dozen or so homes that will be considered at the top winner. In a story last week, Baker's email was incorrect.
