Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Gift to the Community! We heard again and again that this year's light display was one to remember. No matter how many lights you strung on your home this year, you helped contribute to the magic that is our annual fundraiser and you helped support the nine charities that will be benefitting from the collection of over $44,000 this year, so thank you!

The judges' votes were tallied and ribbons were hung on mailboxes. The Best Overall for 2021 goes to the Trimbergers at 54610 Whispering Oak Drive (pictured above). The judges said the wonderfully bright, festive color lights and great use of space in the front yard was a great mix of the different categories. Other award winners are listed below:
