Gingerbread House takes Blue Ribbon

Chelmsford Women of Today took the first prize blue ribbon for the gingerbread depiction of their Spare the Violence Bowl-a-thon in the 8th Annual Gingerbread Village sponsored by All Saints Church to benefit Habitat for Humanity. The Gingerbread Bowl-a-thon featuring two teams, The Flakes (Corn and Snow) vs. The Canes (Candy and Sugar) was one of 85 entries this year. The annual event raised several thousand dollars for Habitat for Humanity.
