Our 3rd Annual Gingerbread House Competition Hosted by Lee County Council on Aging was a great success. This year we had 18 entries; which is an increase by 5 Gingerbread Houses over 2017. LCCOA was thrilled by the support of our community.
The winner this year in the Children category was Ean Lemke. Our judges felt Ean’s Gingerbread House was “creative use of materials”.
The winner in the Family Category was the Feldbush family tiled the “Family Farm”. The judges stated that it was “delightful use of materials, clever concept, charming and darling critters”.
The winner of the organization, corporation, business category went to Heritage Square. Charming assemblage, apparently many contributed to the construction of the delightful village.
The People’s Choice award went to the McGrail Family. The judges’ comments where: Unusual Concept (the Dixon Arch), Good use of materials. Smells Good! The whole family was involved.
Judy Dixon and Betty Predmore graciously accepted our request to be our judges and did a wonderful job reviewing all entries. LCCOA was impressed at the amount of time each judge spent on each entry.
LCCOA would like to thank our judges and all the contestants for their creativity and support of Lee County Council on Aging and a special thank you goes to Thrivent for sponsoring this event.
