By Nancy Benecki

The Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support swept the winner’s circle in the annual 2019 Naval Support Activity Philadelphia Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s gingerbread house decorating competition. First place went to Diana Parry from the Industrial Hardware supply chain, who turned Building 6 into a winter wonderland with tools. Second place went to Sergio Airapetian of the Subsistence supply chain for his house that featured Santa on the roof with a laptop computer. Third place went to Terry Donahue of the Clothing and Textiles supply chain for his C&T workshop gingerbread house.

Entries were judged on holiday spirit, creativity, technique and difficulty, according to the MWR. Themes had to be based on the command where the entrant works. The competition ended on Dec. 13.
