announced January 5, 2014
The Burke Area Chamber of Commerce began a new holiday tradition with a village display of trees 'adopted' and decorated by local businesses and families. One tree was chosen the Grand Prize Winner and received $150 for their local charity of choice. Pictured in back are Danielle Kvam and Nichole Ruggles of the Kingdom Montessori School, who decorated the winning tree. Pictured in the front, left to right are Tim Tierney, Chamber President, Cindy Cady of the Lyndon Dog Pound (the school's charity of choice) with her dogs Moose & Ziggy, Emmy Cobb, Esme Cobb and Hannah Collins, Chamber Vice President.
The Kid's Choice Winner, the WilloBurke Inn & Lodge, received apparel from Kingdom Trails as their prize. Pictured next to their tree are Tim Tierney, Chamber President, Emmy Cobb and Esme Cobb.
