CLARK – The winners of this year’s Clark Recreation Holiday Home Decorating Contest got an added bonus along with their prize – a few seconds of “fame” on a CBS 11 o’clock news broadcast before Christmas.
Clark Recreation announced the contest winners on Dec. 23. This year the Rec Director Ralph Bernardo was joined by the Mayor of Clark, Sal Bonaccorso, his son Joey, and committee member Fran Parisi.
The Serratelli family of 27 Emerson Road was the overall favorite, the Calo family of 63 King Street won “Most Outrageous”, and the Rendeiro family of 2011 Boynton Avenue was chosen as the most traditional. Each family were presented with a $50 gift certificate to Ace Hardware, a lawn sign and of course bragging rights for the win.
Channel 2 newscaster Dave Carlin interviewed the families, the mayor, and Rec Director Ralph Bernardo. This is the seventh year that Clark Recreation sponsored this event.
