Is your seasonal pride showing? Does your front yard have a special Halloween, Thanksgiving or Harvest display? Then go get your digital cameras and enter Resources Real Estate's inaugural Peninsula Harvest Home Decorating contest. Tell them Thomas McCormack sent you!
Beginning this weekend, residents of Peninsula towns including Rumson, Fair Haven, and Little Silver are invited to submit photographs of their exterior autumnal decorations showcasing the creative, picturesque, and whimsical tastes of homeowners residing between the two rivers.
All Halloween, Thanksgiving, and fall house decorations will be considered.
As part of their community outreach program Sharing Resources, Resources Real Estate will donate a Thanksgiving pie for every home submitted to the contest to Lunch Break in Red Bank and will make a monetary donation to the firehouse of the winning home's town.
Entries can be submitted by uploading photos here or by depositing snapshots in the wall mailbox at the agency's 112 River Road address. Submissions can be made by the homeowner or nominated by another party such as a friend or neighbor.
Voting will take place in person as well as online and the winning homeowner will receive an exquisite floral table arrangement for their Thanksgiving setting to accompany their seasonal style.
Resources Real Estate owner Carolynn Diakon said, "We hope this contest will inspire homeowners to take advantage of the beautiful, seasonal resources our area has to offer in an effort to complement the exceptional architectural detail of Peninsula towns."
Diakon hopes the contest will become an annual event - one in which area residents will anticipate and plan for each year during the months leading up to and including autumn.
Every Monday through Friday, Lunch Break serves over 2,500 free hot meals each month at its location on 121 Drs. Parker Boulevard with another 400 meals being delivered to home bound seniors. The Pantry also provides groceries to those who need help and more than 500 children receive Christmas gifts. Social, medical and legal services are available onsite and clothing in good repair is handed out once each month.
Peninsula Harvest Home Decorating contest submissions can be made until Monday, Nov. 23 and the winner will be announced by a special guest at the Resources Real Estate offices on Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 10:00 a.m. For more information call 732-212-0440.
