Chamber Sponsors Business Decorating Contest

The Water Valley Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the decorating contest for businesses in town. Turnage Drug Store is one of the first to decorate for the annual contest.

The Water Valley Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a decorating contest for all Water Valley businesses for the 2018 Watermelon Carnival. The grand prize will be $100, the second place winner will receive $75, and the third place winner will be presented $50. Judging will take place between July 25 and July 27, so please begin decorating as soon as possible.

Winners will be announced at the gazebo on August 4 during the Water- melon Carnival and prizes awarded at that time. All businesses are encouraged to get into the Watermelon Carnival spirit and enter the contest. If you would like to participate, please contact Chamber member Joeli Williamson at (662) 816-7300 or the Chamber of Commerce at (662) 473-1122. Flyers reminding businesses of this contest will be dropped off as well. Deadline to enter is July 23.

As a reminder, there will be a separate contest for individuals sponsored through The Garden Club of Water Valley – for anyone interested in that, you can contact president Jeannette Whitehead for more information.

“We look forward to everyone entering both contests and bringing that Watermelon Carnival sparkle to our town!” reported Chamber President Nell Jobe.
