Autumn Gold Annual Decorating Contest
With Autumn Gold fast approaching it is time to start thinking about the Chamber’s annual Decorating Contest! It is a fantastic tradition that each year area businesses will deck out their windows or storefront in honor of Autumn Gold and the coming of another beautiful fall season in Maine. In past years, the Chamber has sent around judges to pick one window and one storefront winner that they feel best fits the theme.
This year, the committee decided it was time to change it up a little! For the first time, the public will be invited to vote on the website, www.ellsworthchamber.org for their favorite displays in both categories! This gets more folks to each location as they check out what each business has done, and a lot more engagement on social media! The public will be invited to vote once per day from September 14th through noon on September 20th for their choices. The winners will be announced that the Autumn Gold Business After Hours at Acadia Realty that evening as well as on the Chamber Facebook page.
Want to make sure your business is a part of the fun this year? Give us a call at 667-5584 or email [email protected] before August 24th and just let us know if you will be decorating a window display or doing it up big with your whole store front. One category only, please. We only ask that you keep it Autumn related decorations and avoid holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving.
To enter your business for the judging we must be told by August 24th. Your business must be ready to be judged by the morning of September 14th as voting will open by 10 a.m. that day.
