Zuber Realty Congratulates Coloring Contest Winners


by Jane Stahl

The Richard A. Zuber organization celebrates the Christmas season each year by providing events that add to the community's enjoyment and enhance the spirit of giving. As a Toys for Tots location, the organization collects toys for needy children; the fifth annual Light Tour featured 36 homes this year; and Santa and The Grinch welcomed over 50 children on a recent Sunday afternoon who shared their Wish Lists.

Added to the activities this year was a coloring contest organized by real estate agent Aly Heist that attracted over 40 submissions from the area's children featuring reindeer, Christmas trees, snow globes, snowmen, and festively decorated toy trains. Entries were displayed on the windows of the organization's Boyertown office.

Children ages 12 and under were given a set of designs from which to choose and instructed to use markers, crayons, or pencils. They had a month to complete their work and return it to the Boyertown office.

Coloring pages and instructions were left at local businesses, libraries, and at Zuber Realty office in Boyertown. The contest was advertised on social media and through word of mouth.

Santa chose two winners in each age group. Richard Zuber, owner of Zuber Realty awarded two Honorable Mentions in each age group. Prizes included Jumbo Candy Canes, Jumbo Lollipop and Gingerbread House Kits along with some Red Robin Gift Cards and hot cocoa.

"Kids had a great time," notes Aly. "The children were so proud when they dropped off their entires. One mother reported how much her son enjoyed seeing his entry hung on the Zuber office window every time he walked by the office. We have Diane Evanco, administrative assistant, to thank for that idea and for explaining the project to the children who came into the office.

"We are also grateful for Santa's efforts in picking the winners. He had a tough time choosing, however. But we're definitely planning for next year's contest; it was heartwarming to offer an activity for the kids to enjoy," she concludes.
