The Merle Hay Neighborhood Association is sponsoring its 11th annual Holiday Lights Contest. Judging will take place on Monday, December 14th. Please contact April Beck at 515-707-6386 if you would like your house or that of a neighbor considered in the judging. MHNA will also consider decorated homes that we are not specifically contacted about. Three homes within the Merle Hay neighborhood boundaries will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to Merle Hay Mall. Judges will look for creativity, originality, holiday spirit, neatness and theme coordination. Thank you to everyone who helps make our wonderful neighborhood glow with holiday spirit!
