In the spirit of the holidays, CPRO’s West End Revitalization Committee organized a challenge to the Pike’s civic associations to decorate their Neighborhood Conservation to celebrate the season. Signs were photographed on Saturday, December 2.

Signature Theatre’s Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer judged the entries on the basis of creativity, originality, and overall appearance.
Here are the participating civic associations in the Holiday Challenge:
Alcova Heights

Arlington Mill

Columbia Forest

Douglas Park





And the winner is…

Columbia Forest!

Contest judge Eric Schaeffer remarked, “They did a great job of Incorporating their sign into an entire design with a gingerbread house and forest – creating a magical world around it. And it’s well executed with good craftsmanship.”

Sugar Shack Donuts has agreed to provide a dozen donuts for the winning Civic Association’s next meeting.

Thanks to Eric Schaeffer, Sugar Shack Donuts, and all the participating Civic Associations! Happy Holidays!
