Neighbors Win Aberdeen's Holiday Decorating Contest

The two first-place winners decorated houses on Ford Street.

The City of Aberdeen recognized the winners of the Aberdeen Heritage Trust decorating contest Monday, and the blue ribbons went to neighbors.

Walter and Janet Piper won first place in the modern category, which included homes that had lighted and/or inflated characters plus decorative lights. Their home is located at 402 Ford St.

In the colonial category, which included window candles, garlands and wreaths as well as lights, the Pipers' neighbors, at 403 Ford St., took the prize.

Very nice artical, how ever Since I Bryan Day won 1st prize for the colonal cag. think that i deserve my name to be at least in the artical and not referred to as the Pipers neighbor. All the hard work and time i put into dec. the house, and then to be referred to as the pipers neighbor feels like a slap in the face. If your going to write an artical about the winners you should at least have there names!

I have to agree with Bryan Day. I feel that it's poor journalism. All winner's deserve to have their name mention and not be known as someone's neighbor. If your going to write an article please make sure you have all your facts.
