Lakemoor is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Lights are being hung on the homes throughout our peninsula and our community tree is decorated.
The Beautification Committee’s secret panel of judges is excited to cruise the neighborhood selecting the properties they feel represent the Holiday Spirit in Lakemoor. Three Holiday Spirit Awards will be awarded (homes that have won within the last three years are ineligible). Judging will be Sunday & Monday Dec 13 & 14 so be sure your lights will be on. Results will be posted Tue Dec 15th and yards signs placed.
NEW this year….you too will be able to vote in our new award category…NEIGHBORS’ CHOICE AWARD. You will have three votes to cast for homes you feel display the spirit of Christmas in Lakemoor.
