Register for the Storefront Holiday Decorating Contest

To all business owners in the Moriches Bay area:

Many businesses in the Moriches, Center Moriches, and East Moriches communities decorate their building fronts for the holiday season. The Chamber wishes to recognize their efforts and to encourage others to display the spirit of the holidays. The decorations in our business districts bring attention to array of our shops and businesses, and provides enjoyment to the community during the holiday season. The Chamber will recognize with a certificate those businesses that extend the extra effort decorating. Further, during the second week of December, a panel of judges will review the decorated building fronts and select a business that is “The Most Holiday Decorated Business of the Year“.
