Who won the contest? It finished with co-champions declared
"What a fantastic contest we had this year! 31 departments entered their gingerbread creations! We had some very close matches and it all came down to the last 2! I’d like to congratulate Walpole Police Department and Franklin Police Department on being the 2021 Gingerbread contest Co-Champions!
We had to get a little bit creative this year with the winners. It was so close, right down to the last hours when both Walpole and Franklin had some votes come in that were not actual individual votes, but seemed to be some sort of fake votes (no fault of either department at all). So, to keep the purpose and spirit of the competition alive, both departments are this year’s champs!!! We can’t allow a little something like this ruin the fun we’ve had and the hard work put in from all participating departments and all of the folks that followed and supported their departments throughout the competition!
We were able to raise $1,500 toward a cause to be chosen on Saturday, January 1st! Along with the additional awards decided by me! Have a happy and safe New Year everyone and thank you so much for participating and for your generosity!"
