1.) Stella's Holiday Light Tours Start Dec. 14
Stella will be leading her annual Holiday Light Tour this month and she is looking for the best dressed houses to visit. If you think your decorated house has what it takes to be a stop on the tour, sign up by calling (914) 739-5408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before Dec. 13. Houses on dead end streets, narrow streets or other areas where Stella cannot maneuver easily will, unfortunately, not be able to be included in the tours.
At the start of the first Holiday Light Tour on Friday, Dec. 14, the trolley will stop at the house of last year’s winner of the “Best Dressed House” award, and the decorator will receive the First Place Trophy.
