Home decorating contest in Beaver Dam helps needy

BEAVER DAM, Wis. (AP) -- The Christmas decorations in one Beaver Dam subdivision will bring some people cheer long after the holidays.

  Homeowners invited community members to vote in their best decorated home contest by donating food.

  Resident Gloria Hartwig says the 13 families participating in the contest placed a bin at the end of their driveway for people to deposit canned food and other items in.

  Thirty-five items were placed in winners Paul and Laurie White's bin.

  They will receive the neighborhood's traveling trophy to hold for a year.

  Hartwig says the contest brought in nearly 200 food items that will be donated to the Dodge County Food Pantry.
