SALEM — Though the thought may amaze us, the cool weather and snow on the mountain tops have served notice that, once again, summer has slipped away and autumn is here. Right thinking folks understand that this notice is also a reminder that the Holidays are just around the corner – indeed, they’ll be here before we know it!

It is with this Holidays kind of excitement that the Salem City Library invites one and all to come participate in their first ever Gingerbread Festival and Competition, “Home for the Holidays”, to be held at the Library the week of November 27.

Entries will be accepted at the Library on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of the week before (November 20 – 22). A prize of $100 will be awarded for 1st place in each of 5 different categories; Family and/or Group Projects, Kids with a Kit, Adult non-professional, and Over-sized, Special theme projects. The fifth prize will be awarded to “The People’s Favorite”, and

A prize of $100 will be awarded for 1st place in each of 5 different categories; Family and/or Group Projects, Kids with a Kit, Adult non-professional, and Over-sized, Special theme projects. The fifth prize will be awarded to “The People’s Favorite”, and may be an entry in any of the four categories.

All entries will be considered as a donation and offered for sale through a Silent Auction lasting for the week of the Festival. Proceeds will benefit the Acorn Project — a citizen’s initiative looking toward the future and a new library for Salem.

Just imagine the sight and the smell of fresh gingerbread transforming the library, bringing the Christmas spirit to young and old in one aromatic visit. Make plans now to bring family and friends. Come by the Library to see the wonderful gingerbread displays, then drive around Salem Pond to see the magical Holiday lighting reflected in the water. For the creative and adventurous, go beyond visiting the festival and design and build an entry of your own. We’ll be excited to see it, and you, there!
