“There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm in the area for both contests” relates Nancy Parlo, TBPA coordinator. “The Dietrich Theater recently sponsored classes for both gingerbread house and candy craft construction. The theater generously offered both classes free of charge to allow participants the opportunity to learn from some professionals. Gina Sherwood, noted area baker, instructed the Gingerbread House workshop while Eileen Barziloski of Ebb’s Candy Jar provided instructions for the editable holiday decorations.
Rules for both contests are available on the TBPA website www.tunkhannockbusiness.com. Entries can be delivered to Robinson’s Martial Arts Studio, 18 E. Tioga Street, on Thursday, Dec. 6 between 4 and 7:30 pm. Or Friday, Dec 7 between 3:30 and 5:00 pm. A copy of a completed entry form must be presented with each entry. Contests will be judged Friday evening. All submissions should be pickup up on Monday, Dec. 10 – 4:15 – 8 p.m. Four winners will be selected. One adult and one child entry in each of the Gingerbread House and the Holiday Candy Craft contests will receive a $25 gift prize courtesy of Brick’s Market.
“We appreciate everyone’s cooperation to make these contests possible,” relates Parlo. “Creating a Gingerbread House and some editable candy decorations are wonderful family activities that can become great holiday traditions.”
