SYRACUSE – The Syracuse-Wawasee Chamber of Commerce held a light pole decorating contest in October.

The winners of this year’s contest were recently announced and they are: first place, Uptown Beauty Joint; second place, Indiana Dimensional Coatings; and third place, ReMax Partners Syracuse. Each winning business received a trophy along with a prize from Dockside Apparel & Gifts/DK Promotions.
