Congratulations to Mary Tucker at 2238 Lanier Avenue for winning FIRST PLACE in the Amity Gardens Holiday Decorations contest. Mary received a $75 gift card to Walmart and the WINNER sign for her yard.
“I moved here in 1989, the year Hugo blew through, the best neighborhood in Charlotte.
A few years later Anne Barnett (corner of Unaka & Dudley) gave me this tree for Christmas (just a little sprig) who thought it would get this big. She and Hans Christiansen (deceased) planted it.
Several years ago Terry Greene (Bernie Helms) nephew brought a crew and installed 13,000 lights on the tree. Squirrels love to chew on them. If you have any extra string lights you are willing to sell cheap, let me know. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
My son worked on the lights on Thanksgiving day and got them working and put the rest of the lights in the yard. Bonnie install the lights around the house.
I am SO EXCITED to be chosen” – Mary Tucker
