Help us make a MERRIER MAYFAIR!!

Tis the Season Mayfair!

It's time for the first ever "Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest"!

Beginning today, the Mayfair Civic Association working in conjunction with the Mayfair Business Association, will be awarding prizes and custom lawn signs to the 3 best decorated houses in Mayfair!

It's a Major Award!

This contest is open to all current, and hopefully future Mayfair Civic Association members!

The rules are simple:

1. To be judged in the contest, you must live within the boundaries of the Mayfair Civic Association

2. Your home must be nominated either by yourself or by a neighbor

3. The nominations are open from December 1st until 11:59PM December 15th

4. Your decorations must be visible from the street, and lit until at least 11:00PM

How it works:

- Beginning today, you may either nominate your own home, or you can nominate a neighbors home which you feel best captures the spirit of the Christmas Season.

- You can nominate your home by visiting (and joining) the Mayfair Civic Association facebook page -, or by sending an email to Mayfair Civic

- Shortly after we begin to receive nominations, we will create a Google Map so that people living in Mayfair as well as people visiting Mayfair can drive around and check out each entry on their own - How cool is that?!?

(As a courtesy to our neighbors living in surrounding neighborhoods, even though they will not be eligible to win the contest, we will be more than happy to include their homes on our map as well - The more the Merrier!)

- From December 16th - 20th, 12 Judges will score each entry on a scale of 1-12, with a 1 being the equivalent of a window cling, and a 12 being a full blown Christmas Extravaganza!

- Here in Mayfair we do not do "1st, 2nd, 3rd", we simply award the Top 3 equally

- On Sunday December 22nd the winner will be announced, and sometime that evening members from the Mayfair Civic Association as well as the Mayfair Business Association will come to each winners home to award them with their custom lawn sign indicating that they are indeed "2013 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest Winners", and other prizes donated by members of the Mayfair Business Association.

It's simple to do, it's fun to do, and it is another great even happening right here in Mayfair!

This contest is a team effort, and without the work of the Mayfair Civic Association, the Mayfair Business Association, and our neighbors living right here in Mayfair who go all out during the Christmas season, none of this would not be possible. PROPS to you all! Together we can ensure that Mayfair continues to be a great place to visit, and an awesome place to live!

Have FUN!!
