Holiday Decoration Contest Winner

Champlain Park Holiday Decorations Contest

We would like to congratulate the winner of the Champlain Park Holiday Decorations Contest whose efforts were recognized by Champlain Park residents. The winner is 234 Cowley Avenue!!! This house was voted the best decorated by residents of Champlain Park because of the dozens of festive decorations that adorned it: snowmen, strings of lights, toy soldiers, etc…It was not surprising that the Santa stopover won the prize that consists of a $50 gift certificate that can be used at any Wellington West merchant.
