On Tuesday, Dec. 13, the NDSU Extension Service Hettinger County hosted its annual Christmas at the Courthouse. Although it was cold and windy outside, people still managed to come and socialize over hot apple cider, coffee and numerous baked Christmas goodies.
The highlight of the open house is for Hettinger County residents to stop in and see the beautiful Christmas trees that are decorated from different non-profit local organizations within Hettinger County and catch up with old friends and make new ones! This year there were five tree entries. Farm Service Agency of Mott, Mott Regent FFA Chapter, The Hettinger County Flickertail 4-H club, The Hettinger County Lions and the Good Samaritan Society of Mott.
Maggie Banyai, owner of Flowers 4 U in Mott was this year’s Christmas tree judge. This year first place was awarded to the Flickertail 4-H Club, they will receive a $100 cash prize. Second place was awarded to The Good Samaritan Society of Mott, and will receive a $50 cash prize. This year’s People’s Choice award goes to the Flickertail 4-H club and will receive a $25 cash prize.
The NDSU Extension Service Hettinger County would like to thank everyone for taking time from their busy schedules to decorate their trees and for taking the time to attend the open house and spend time with their neighbors.
