The regularity with which Point Village has been champing the National Lighting Competition, has triggered a call from one of its major contributors – Floret Daniel, for other communities to provide them with “some competition.”
The Point Village production, themed ‘Christmas on Point; We celebrating in Style’ and under the coordination of Daniel, captured the 2022 title, making it the tenth straight year it had done so, pushing Daniel to declare that they were a cut above the other entrants.
She fingered the other communities for their lack of passion and commitment.
“People are not taking the time out and put the effort in… Even at short notice we still put the effort in,” Daniel suggested.
According to Daniel, “Deslyn Daniel was the one who came up with the theme and we knew that we were going to make it ten years in a row.”
She reasoned, though, that it was their teamwork that made the difference.
The production team id comprise of three designers and five persons who tape the lights.
Daniel gave the assurance that Point was not ready to renege on their commitment, and stated boldly that come 2023, Point Village was once again going to be crowned National
