    The Cohase Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce the first ever Cohase Winter Decorating Contest for the entire Cohase region. With the help of main sponsor Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank and the support of  Wells River Savings Bank we welcome both businesses and individuals to decorate for the season and enter in this fun contest.

We do need any business that plans to enter to sign up on our website ( The winning business will receive a trophy proclaiming their decorating superiority.

    We also encourage any or all residents who wish to enter to also register and take part. Again the only requirement is that the property be within the six towns of the Cohase Chamber of Commerce area. Again there is no entry fee. For the residence getting the most votes a cash prize of $200.00 will be awarded along with a trophy. Second place will be $100.00 and third prize is $75.00.

    For both business and residential divisions votes will be cast by members of the general public. We ask both local and visiting persons to go to our website to download the map of registered locations, then make a tour around the area to view as many sites as you can, and then cast your ballot. We do ask that voters rank their top three choices in each division. Ballots are due by Wednesday, December 28th, and can be cast at The announcement of the winners will occur in the new year.
