The Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce asked area businesses to decorate wreaths for an all new event, DECK the DOORS. The finished wreaths were presented at a holiday party held at Rose History Auditorium and first, second and third place winners were selected by a group of judges. In addition, there was a People’s Choice award. Each wreath was auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting the Marco Island Historical Society and the Chamber of Commerce. First Place Wreath was decorated by the Marco Island Historical Society. Second Place Wreath was decorated by Beach Dogs. Third Place wreath was created by Karen Swanker. The People’s Choice Award went to Beach Dogs! The Island Theater Company Kids regaled the audience with Christmas Carols. This first time event was a huge success and promises to be even more successful next year.
