Tarentum business owners asked to decorate windows for Christmas

Brian C. Rittmeyer

Attention all Tarentum business owners: it’s time to decorate!

The Tarentum Recreation Board is sponsoring a Christmas window decorating contest for borough businesses.

It’s been a long time since such a contest has been done, board member Cindy Homburg said. Information has been handed out to all borough businesses.

“It’s something that the recreation board thought would be something nice to do to brighten the town up and get the town involved in celebrating Christmas and make it look festive,” she said.

First-, second- and third-place prizes will be awarded to the three best windows in town. Prizes will be gift certificates to a Tarentum business.

“We decided to keep everything in town,” Homburg said.

Judging will be done on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

For information, call Homburg at 724-612-0076 or Carrie Fox at 724-448-1470.

The recreation board also held its annual scarecrow decorating contest this year. Maskas & Sons took top honors with a scarecrow featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Prizes were awarded at the new “Boofest” on Oct. 20.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
