CARTHAGE, MISSOURI -

Carthage, Missouri – The Carthage Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that the winner of the inaugural Holiday Window Contest is the Carthage Technical Center North for their adorable Lights, Camera, Action, Christmas themed window. The window depicts a winter scene including a gingerbread house, lots of fun characters, and a movie camera capturing all of the action. When advised of the win, Lorie Teegarden of the Tech Center said “I saw Mark [Elliff, President of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce] getting out of the car and thought, I wonder if this means good news. Yay and thank you so much!” In addition to the honor of being the inaugural winner, the Tech Center won a $100 Visa gift card. If you are looking for some family fun this week, the Tech Center will host a gingerbread house making class on Thursday the 8th from 4-5:30.
