Sparwood seniors choose best decorated homes

On Dec. 16, the Sparwood Chamber toured Sparwood with a group of seniors looking at holiday decorations and judging homes.

The Annual Senior Night was held by the Sparwood Chamber on Dec. 16. The chamber toured Sparwood with a group of seniors looking at holiday decorations and judging homes.  The judging was for the “best decorated” homes and the homes that showed the most Christmas spirit. The categories are – “Top 3 homes” where judges decide what three homes they visited were the most spirited. “Top Mobile” the mobile home with the most holiday show. And the “Top 8 ‘Must See’” homes that did not make the top three but are well worth the visit.

“We toured Sparwood, with the seniors, looking at lights and judging homes. We returned to Lilac Terrace for refreshments, cake, door prizes and entertainment. All prizes for the decorated homes are supplied by the Sparwood Futures Society, and the cake from Overwaitea,” said the Chamber in a press release.

The top three homes as decided by the Chamber and their party were the homes of Bob and Darlene Nickerson at 1247 Valleyview ranked at number one, Henry Colkman at 113 Spardell at number two and third place was Jack and Tammy Doratty at 316 Lodgepole Pl.

The Top Mobile recognition was Pat and Joan Glynn from Mountain View lot number 55.

The top eight must see homes can be found in Sparwood at 402 White Oak, 1339 Cherrywood, 452 Mountain Ash, 301 Pacific Yew, 488 Pine, 463 White Birch, 1319 Briarwood Place and 126 Pine Avenue.

The Sparwood Chamber recognizes the help they received during and after the event.

“The Sparwood Chamber would like to thank Black Gold Bus Lines, driver Sonny Saad, Overwaitea Foods, Futures Society and Lilac Terrace for help making this a fun night for our seniors,” said the Chamber.

They would also appreciate the amount of people who decorate their homes for the season.

“The Sparwood Chamber would like to thank everyone who takes the time to decorate their homes, it really does make Sparwood look beautiful during the holiday season. Thank-you to everyone that made this evening and event happen for our seniors.  Merry Christmas to everyone from the Sparwood Chamber,” said the Chamber.
