Kick off your holiday season by joining Human Services Programs for a sneak preview of the Gingerbread Village Festival. The gingerbread house will be on display in the Winchester Exchange Building, in the hallway outside the Chamber’s Office. Check out the amazing creativity displayed and vote for your favorite designs in the gingerbread house contest. Now in its fifth year, the Gingerbread Village Festival is a fun way to raise awareness and critical funding for Carroll County’s five homeless shelters. The Gingerbread Village brings attention to the needs of the homeless in Carroll County during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week.
