A Holiday Tradition Returns

Remember that longtime favorite community event, the Mary’s Marvelous gingerbread-house competition? Project Most is bringing it back this year, with kits available now for families to reserve at $30 apiece.

Participants can drop off finished creations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Wednesday, Dec. 13, through Friday, Dec. 15, and on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at 44 Meadow Way, Project Most’s current community center (inside the Most Holy Trinity School).

On the afternoon of Dec. 16, the houses will be on display from 2 to 4 and guests can stop by to enjoy seasonal snacks, see everyone’s holiday handiwork, and vote for their favorite house. Two winners will be awarded, a “most popular” prize and a “judge’s vote” prize.

Registration is required at Kits must be picked up within five days of signing up.
