There were so many wonderful displays this year including a “live” Santa Claus on Brinkworth Lane that children could sit on his lap! Kudos! to all residents that decorated this year!

The Nite of Lites event would not be possible without judges. This year, we had a wonderful group of non-resident volunteers that spent their Saturday evening judging our contest. A HUGE “thank you” to:

  Jerry & Yvonne Clark   Bruce & Michele Houtchens  
  Paul & Carol Crawford   Dr. Brendan Kennedy  
  Newton & Martha Houston   Fran Pierce  
      Kyle & Carla Villyard  

We couldn’t have done it without you!

Thank you to long-time resident, Barbara Vann, for driving some of the judges around the neighborhood. We couldn’t have done it without her either!

The Committee also needs to thank the residents of 8100 Wycomb Lane (2010 Best Block winners) for securing some of the judges and then hosting the judges’ dinner. The food, desserts and ambiance were fabulous! Thank you to the Howards for letting us invade their beautiful home and to Polly Braun for coordinating the evening.

This year’s Nite of Lites winners received some awesome and generous awards. “Thank you very much!” to all of our 2011 Nite of Lites Sponsors. To properly recognize and thank these sponsors, their representative and donation have been listed in a separate area. Please stop by these establishments to say hello to the owner and/or manager and don’t forget to mention that their generosity to our wonderful event is truly appreciated.

Thank you again to all the participants in this year’s Nite of Lites celebration and congratulations to the 2011 winners.
