Announcing Chatham Literacy’s First Annual “Holiday Door Decorating Event”

If your family and friends can’t visit you over this holiday season then consider “opening your door” anyway by joining Chatham Literacy’s “Holiday Door Decorating Event.”

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”27″ gal_title=”Holiday Door Decorating Event”]

Decorate your front door this year in celebration of any of the holidays that occur in November or December.  Fashion your door to sparkle, exude elegance, make you laugh or just plain bust with holiday spirit!

Send a good quality photo of your seasonally decorated front door to Chatham Literacy between November 13th and December 18th. Winners receive a $50 gift card and a picture of your festive front door published in the Chatham News + Record, not to mention bragging rights!

“This is your chance to dazzle the community with your holiday spirit,” said Vicki Newell, Executive Director of Chatham Literacy. “I hope you will join this feel-good event and safely open your door to your family, friends and the community.”

Submit one door or multiple doors over the holidays. Registration fee is $20 per decorated door. Share your photo of any magical, elegant, crafty or hilarious holiday-themed door decoration.

Entries include the “Best Decorated Residential Door”, “Best Decorated Business Door” and “Best Neighborhood Holiday Door Spirit” (for most decorated doors in a neighborhood). Photos of the three best decorated doors will be published in the Chatham News + Record. All doors will be posted on Chatham Literacy’s website and through the News + Record’s social media platforms.

So, come on and participate in this fun, annual holiday event!  Hurry to register at or call 919-742-0578.

“We can all use a little extra holiday spirit during the last part of this very difficult year, so we’re thrilled to be working with Chatham Literacy to promote this,” said News + Record Publisher Bill Horner III. “We strongly support the CL’s literacy work in Chatham County, so this is also a great way to show your support for the work Vicki and her team do.”

Be on the lookout for updates and decorated door photos in the Chatham News + Record during this fundraising event.
