Blakes Win Patriotic House Contest

          Congratulations to the winners of New Cumberland’s recent Patriotic House Contest:  Todd and Shannon Blake,1st place; Stacey Manypenny, 2nd place; Bob and Linda Salerno, 3rd place.  All three homes showed their patriotic colors with buntings, flags, lawn art, and colorful lights.  The houses really stood out after dark with red, white, and blue twinkling lights.  Each winner received a check and a certificate from the city and the NC Volunteers.  Thanks to all those who displayed their patriotic spirit by decorating their houses and yards for the Memorial Day observances.  The city also sponsors a Yard of the Month contest beginning in June.  So be sure to get your lawn and flower beds in shape for summer and help make our town shine a little brighter.
