|Kathleen M. Hall, CPA, on Virginia Street won first place among Urbanna businesses.|
The judges of the Urbanna Christmas decorations contest had a difficult time deciding who had the better Christmas decorations, said contest coordinator Pat Marshall.
The judges, all from Richmond, were Linda Vick, Nancy Burford and Mary Beth Taormina. “After 90 minutes, they finally made their decisions,” said Marshall.
“Congratulations to all of the winners!” said Marshall. “And I could fill the rest of the page telling you about all of the other beautiful decorations. So, go out and see for yourselves how beautiful Urbanna and the area around it is. The kids will love it, too.”
