For the last several weeks the windows of the Purdue Extension Office in downtown Hartford City have been covered. There are signs saying that the elves are up to something. The coverings are now off of the windows and some of their handiwork is now visible. Each year, the businesses in downtown Hartford City take part in a holiday decorating contest. “We’ve won and tied for winning in the past and hope to do so again this year,” said Purdue Extension Director, Cheri Brown.

“Our theme this year is based on ‘The Polar Express’,” she continued. “A Purdue Express” if you will. Anyone is welcome to stop in the office during the tree lighting on Saturday, November 26. There they can fully experience what the elfin magic has created,” added Brown.
