2020 Holiday Decorating Contest Results

December 20, 2020 at 6:29 pm

Behind the scenes: each year judges drive around CW and take copious notes, checking out the festive decorations. We like to use different judges each year to get a fresh take with the selections. Generally, we try not to have a house win first-prize two years in a row (share the joy!) In summary, many of our residents consistently do a terrific job each December, and we thank those of you who participate for the warmth, sparkle, and fun that you share with us. 

Notes from out front: 

*The four 1st prize winners have a sign in their front yard to designate their exalted status.

*Gift card prizes are awarded by mail — except for 1st prize which is personally delivered by a team of Clydesdales…or one of the judges, depending on what’s available. 

*Kudos to those of you who make your decorations; the rest of us are impressed and wish we knew how to operate a jig saw…

*Inflatables are VERY popular and provide a lot of entertainment, especially when they attempt to take flight on a windy day.

*One family added MUSIC this year! (See 1st place/Best in Show) Delightful!

2020 CWCA Trunk or Treat Cancelled

October 23, 2020 at 12:40 pm

CDC recommendations made it clear that Trunk or Treat is not a good idea this year so the Board has cancelled the activity. Neighbors are still hoping to safely enjoy Halloween in a variety of ways — small outdoor gatherings and at-a-distance trick-or-treating. Here’s hoping the weather cooperates so the young goblins, witches, and ghosties can have a special evening!
