There will be a non-lighted home decorating contest this Christmas season sponsored by the North Big Horn Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with members of the Lovell Town Council. The idea for the decorating contest stemmed from Monday’s council meeting when discussion came up on Christmas lighting in Lovell. According to Herman Fink, chamber president and councilman, the contest has a total of $65 collected, $25 from the Chamber and $40 from the council, to donate toward the contest.
