2008 HOLIDAY LIGHT CONTEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The Batavia Area Jaycees were out driving around on December 16th looking at all the homes that had decorated for the Holiday Season. These awards are ment to be given out as a friendly community project.  If you are offended by winning, please leave the Jaycees a message at 585-343-5775 and we will remove your name/house for future consideration.

Homes were judged on five different categories and the winners are:
Most Traditional – 107 Ross Street – beuatiful garland and ribbon, old time decorations.
Simple & Elegant - 45 Bogue Street – Classic white lights, wreaths and bows.
Most Colorful - 6 Allen Street – You name it, this house had that color.
Most Commercial - 15 Roosevelt Avenue. This house one because of the over 6 different moving white figures.
Overall - 3927 West Main Street – This year the lights were blinking to music when we went.
 
We did have a runner up for the Most Commercial, the home located at 29 Roosevelt Avenue and two Honorable Mentions – the homes at 3 South Main Street and 21 Union Street.
 
The Batavia Area Jaycees also thought the home at 8303 Lewiston Road took the phrase “Going Green” to a new meaning!
 
Take a night to drive around with family looking at all the wonderfully decorated homes for the holiday season. 
 
On a safety note, the Jaycees noticed many houses didn’t have visible numbers that you can see from the street either on the house or the mailbox. Help protect your family in case of an emergency and put up house numbers!
