The Rome Historical Society and Rome Recreation Department are announcing that they will be holding a Christmas House Decorating Contest this holiday season. The group will travel the city during the early weeks of December, to view and nominate the best-lit and decorated homes and businesses within the city. The top-three finalist will be notified personally in later December. The finalists will be announced and awarded on December 20 with a gift certificate of $50, $30, or $20 accordingly. The winning home will also have a photo opportunity to display their winning home and family. For further information, please contact the Recreation Department at (315) 339-7654.
