The City of Norwalk's Community Promotion Commissioners armed themselves with hot chocolate and cool determination in December as they toured the eleven properties nominated for the 2017 Holiday Home Decor Contest. The five commissioners visited the residences at various times throughout the judging period, taking note of each display's creativity, theme and visual appeal. Individual voting was taken and tabulated during their January meeting.
As in past years, the selection process was made difficult by the pool of thoughtful and original entries received. After long consideration and with appreciation for all in Norwalk who took the time to decorate their yards and homes, we announce this winter's winners:
1st place: William Stapley
2nd place: Cliff Westerlin
3rd place: Henry Fuentes
Honorable Mention: Kevin and Wendy Forsberg
Winners will be recognized in a special presentation during the February 6 City Council meeting.
