Gingerbread House "Friendraiser"

After three weeks of fierce silent bidding, the lucky owner of the Habitat model house made of delectable gingerbread, candy, and icing was the Symes family! Colleen and Mike Symes submitted the highest bid, and say that their daughters, Natalie (left) and Morgan (behind the house), were delighted with the house. We didn't ask if they'd eaten it yet!
Thanks to the Vermilion Allied Arts Council, Western Financial, Webb's of Vermilion, and the Vermilion Credit Union for displaying the house throughout December. Special thanks to Mike Webb and friends who, like Gingerbread Men, were very quick, and way ahead of us as moving men! Thanks also to the generous creators of the house, who wish to remain anonymous!
