Robey Memorial Library to host gingerbread decorating contest

Take-home contest begins November 20 for return by December 4 for judging

The Robey Memorial Library Foundation is hosting a gingerbread decorating contest and awarding three Amazon Fire tablets to the most creative decorators. This year the contest, hosted in previous years by Kitchen Krafts, will be a take-home decorating event open to all families in Waukon.

Beginning Monday, November 20, while supplies last, families can pick up a free gingerbread house from Robey Memorial Library, located at 401 First Avenue NW in Waukon. They can then decorate the house with the materials in the box, or put their own twist on it and add their own decorations. Participants are encouraged to be creative.

Once decorated, gingerbread houses must be returned to the library for display and public voting by December 4. The three gingerbread houses that receive the most votes will each win an Amazon Fire 7 tablet from the Robey Memorial Library Foundation.

Supplies for the event are limited. An adult must be present to pick up the gingerbread house the week of November 20; one gingerbread house per household. Questions may be answered by emailing or calling 563-568-4424.
