CLARK, NJ – Let the bragging begin!  The winners of the 2015 Clark Recreation holiday house decorating contest were announced Wednesday morning by Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo.

“It was tough this year,” Bernardo said.  “The committee really looked for creativity, something special or sentimental.”  Although Bernardo chauffeured the 3-person committee through the township, he was not one of the judges.

“The above normal temperature this season made more people take their time and really get into decorating their house,” Bernardo said. “We have never had this many entries in the seven years running the contest."
