More than 40 neighborhood residents participated in the 37th annual Doors of Shippan holiday decorating contest. Residents adorned their doors with wreaths, ornaments and other objects and were judged Thursday in eight design categories for their creativity and craftsmanship. A new category this year was a challenge for residents to decorate their doors recognizing movies of Stamford resident and actor Gene Wilder, who died this year.
