St. George’s Rotary President Ricki Lee Pitcher said, “I enjoyed my evening with my co-judges as we braved to wind and rain that evening.

“The contestants have done a great job decorating they’re window spaces. It’s a beautiful tradition that I’d love to see more business take interest in. It definitely adds to the Christmas ambience of the ole Town.”
