If you’re like most, you agree that some holiday traditions are ageless, like the charm of a beautifully decorated gingerbread house. The cheerful aroma brings back warm holiday memories and delights the young and young at heart.

We invite you to create your own gingerbread house, display it at our Gingerbread Festival Open House and Contest, and maybe win $250 for yourself, your family, your organization, or your church!

Just complete the entry form and return it to us by mail, fax or email. Come see how we Celebrate the Ageless Holiday Spirit at Peabody Retirement Community!
