Morenci's light pole decorating to begin 2012.09.19

It’s time to claim your light pole.

The Morenci Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor its annual light pole decorating contest downtown during October.

Decorations should go up anytime after Oct. 1 and judging is planned after Oct. 15. Prizes of Morenci Money will be given to the top three winners.

Any business or organization wishing to participate should attache a note to a pole staking their claim. As a courtesy, the business owner of the pole nearest a store could be asked if the business intends to decorate it.

The Morenci Garden Club will furnish lights at each pole to illuminate the decorations at night.

Decorations will remain in place until Christmas holiday lights are put up near Thanksgiving.
