C.Davis/T.Lucas - The Town of Pincher Creek and Pincher Creek Communities In Bloom once again promoted beautifying the community with a Christmas Decorating Challenge this season. Judges toured the community on November 29 to look at businesses and December 6 to look at residences. Some decorators missed the deadline, but were thanked at the presentation for their efforts to brighten up the community. This was the sixth year of the event. A Social event with snacks and refreshments and presentations to the winners was held at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village on the evening of December 13.

At the awards presentation Diane Burt-Stuckey spoke about the annual Communities in Bloom program Picher Creek has been involved in for many years.  "We actually competed in International last year. We could hardly believe we were at that level."

"I think that's what our committee really is committed to; Making our community better for us as citizens, for visitors who come to our community, and it really is for our benefit and enjoyment all the time, but it really puts our community on the map."

"Certainly it's fun to do a seasonal thing like the Winter lights, and what a great turnout, thank you to everyone for coming."

Marie Everts awarded the Business awards.  "There were new displays after the judging, but it was great to see everyone participating."
