Bel-Con's Tree Decorating Challenge for #ChristmasSharing2019

December 17, 2019

Once again we chose to celebrate the season with Bel-Con's Tree Decorating Challenge! As in past years we challenged some of our clients to join in the FUN of decorating a good, old-fashioned Christmas tree. We gathered up a trailer load of trees from Paul Martin and Denmar Farms then played Santa distributing trees.

This Year's Contestants Were:

  1. Durabla
  2. Cascades
  3. Autosystems Plant 1
  4. Hamilton-Smith
  5. Alliance Custom Fabrication
  6. Autosystems Plant 3
  7. SafeStart (a Division of Electrolab)
  8. Triangle Fluid Controls
  9. QVSS
  10. Autosystems Plant 2

And of course, we saved one tree for ourselves.

What's at Stake?

As in past years, each of our contestants decorated their tree, competing for a donation that we make on behalf of our "winners" to Christmas Sharing, a local charity helping needy families have a Merry Christmas. Winners also have bragging rights until the following year!

The "prizes" are:

  • First place ‘wins’ a donation to Christmas Sharing of $500
  • Second place ‘wins’ a donation to Christmas Sharing of $300
  • Third place ‘wins’ a donation to Christmas Sharing of $200

As in past years, our impartial Supreme Judge was Bruce Mackay (of Mackay Insurance). Competition was stiff and the judging panel awarded a few ties this year!

Our 2019 Winners Are:

First Place:

SafeStart (A Division of Electrolab)

 

Second Place – 2 way tie:

Hamilton-Smith

Triangle Fluid Controls

Third Place – 2 way tie:

Cascades

QVSS

As a result of the multiple ties, we will be donating an additional $500 of prize money to the Christmas Sharing program. Thanks once again to all this year's contestants. Not only have they made the industrial park a little brighter, they also helped make a brighter Christmas for some families in our community as well!
