Adding sparkle to the hol­i­days

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Stanstead res­i­dents have been try­ing to outdo each other as they vied for the top hon­ours in the town’s “Feerie de Noel” con­test. The win­ners have just been an­nounced and they are: Nathalie Belleville, 3 Ter­rill, Stanstead sec­tor; Gas­ton Fau­teux, 46 Boul. Notre Dame, Rock Is­land sec­tor; and Suzanne Du­quette, 3 Do­min­ion Gran­ite street, Beebe sec­tor. They will each re­ceive a cheque of $60 from the town’s Re­cre­ation depart­ment. “Spe­cial Men­tion” win­ners of the two Stanstead Jour­nal prizes of tick­ets to the Mai­son du Cinema are Merna Du­til at 14 Ter­rill and John Langevin at 503 Duf­ferin. Even with­out a con­test to mo­ti­vate them, many Town­ship­pers just love ex­press­ing their hol­i­day spirit by dec­o­rat­ing their homes, in­side and out, such as the Mc Combs of Stanstead East, the sub­jects of this week’s ‘Por­trait’ ar­ti­cle.

The Mc Comb home on the 143 in Stanstead East is a feast for the eyes at this time of year.

The Beebe home of Suzanne Du­quette on Do­min­ion Gran­ite Street was dec­o­rated with orig­i­nal­ity.

Nathalie Belleville added a chim­ney dec­o­ra­tion to her home on Ter­rill Street in Stanstead, not want­ing Santa to pass her by!

Gas­ton Fau­teux taste­fully used white lights in his cre­ation on Notre Dame in the Rock Is­land sec­tor.
