Cham­ber tells plans for win­dow dec­o­rat­ing con­test

In cel­e­bra­tion of In­de­pen­dence Day, the Greater Bryant Cham­ber of Com­merce is hold­ing a win­dow dec­o­rat­ing con­test.

Anna Brimhall, spe­cial events co­or­di­na­tor, said all can par­tic­i­pate in the con­test, in­clud­ing non­cham­ber mem­bers.

The Cham­ber wants to see busi­nesses in and around Sa­line County dec­o­rate their win­dows in pa­tri­otic themes for the hol­i­day. Brimhall said dec­o­ra­tions may in­clude red, white and blue, fire­works images and any­thing tra­di­tion­ally as­so­ci­ated with the hol­i­day.

Brimhall and Dana Poin­dex­ter, as­sis­tant to Bryant Mayor Allen Scott, came up with the idea when they were plan­ning the re­cent Pic­nic at the Port.

Any busi­ness that wants to par­tic­i­pate needs to con­tact Brimhall at the Cham­ber to have their busi­ness name and ad­dress added to the list for the judges.

Three judges will look at the win­dows and pick a win­ner July 2.

The win­ning busi­ness will win 30 days of dig­i­tal bill­board ad­ver­tis­ing with Ashby St. Out­doors. Brimhall said the prize should re­ally make an im­pact for the win­ner.

Brimhall en­cour­ages busi­nesses to start plan­ning their dis­plays for the con­test now.

She feels that the con­test will be great for the com­mu­nity and a fun way to cel­e­brate.

She hopes that the win­dows will re­ceive the at­ten­tion of passersby so they stop and check out busi­nesses.

This will be the first time for the con­test, but Brimhall hopes it re­ally takes off and busi­nesses want to par­tic­i­pate again. If it does well, the Cham­ber may add dec­o­rat­ing con­tests for other hol­i­days.
