The contest was a bright spot in the region this winter and inspired over 150 people to enjoy the self-directed tour and vote for their favorites.
“We were excited to offer a socially distanced celebration and encourage people to go out and visit local businesses during the holiday season. The response has been overwhelming, and we look forward to continuing this new tradition next year,” commented Ruth Ann Hacking, Executive Director of the Cohase Chamber of Commerce.
The contest was run by the Cohase Chamber of Commerce with the support of founding sponsor Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank, with additional sponsorship from Stifel Investment Services and Wells River Savings Bank.
