2012 Holiday Light Award Winners

2012 Holiday Light Award Winners

(C. Proxmire, Dec. 22, 2012)

Each December, The Ferndale Beautification Commission takes nominations and selects the winners of the Holiday Light Awards.  One winner from each quadrant of the city is selected, plus one business.  Earlier this week Beautification Commission Chairperson Peggy Snow delivered letters to the homeowners and invited them to the first City Council meeting in January, where they will be presented with their certificates.

Dino’s Lounge, with its dark-painted facade and brilliant blue holiday lights, won for the business award.

Justin Merchant of 484 W. Troy won for the SW side.

The MacDonald Family – Hugh, Samantha and Lila – of 751 Jewell won for the SE side.

Thomas Sampson at 1436 Orchard won for the NE side.

And Norm and Audrey Raymond of 1166 Withington won for the NW side.

There are many beautifully-decorated homes in Ferndale, and the commission tries to select new ones each year.  Read about previous winners at http://oaklandcounty115.com/2012/01/15/2011-holiday-light-awards-presented/, and http://oaklandcounty115.com/2011/01/11/holiday-light-awards-announced/

Sadly there was a case of vandalism this year at the home of a previous winner.  Read about the damage at http://oaklandcounty115.com/2012/12/19/christmas-decorations-destroyed-but-not-the-spirit/.

The Beautification Commission is currently seeking out new members.  Their main projects are the Holiday Light Awards and the Beautification Awards.  For more information about the Commission and how to apply, visit the City of Ferndale website at http://ferndale-mi.com/Government/BoardOpenings.htm.
