Holiday decorating contests return for another year in Plum
Two contests again will be part of this year's Sugar Plum Days festivities.
A house-decorating contest is being coordinated by the Sugar Plum Days Committee.
There is no entry fee.
Winners will be selected in the categories of regular criteria and “Griswold Award” criteria.
The award in the regular-criteria category goes to the most traditionally decorated house. The Griswold award goes to the most unusually decorated house.
A wreath decorating contest also will be coordinated by the Sugar Plum Days Committee.
There is no entry fee.
Finished wreaths will be displayed at the library during regular hours. Judging will be by popular vote. Anyone may visit the library and vote for a favorite wreath.
Ribbons and prizes for first ($50), second ($30) and third ($15) places will be awarded to the winners.
Winners will be announced at the Borough Building at 7 p.m. Dec. 15.
Decorated wreaths should be taken to the library by 8 p.m. Dec. 10. Voting will take place from Dec. 11 to 15.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
