Volunteer Now to Help with "New Melle Country Christmas" Nov. 26

New Melle’s Country Christmas is quickly approaching and Santa’s elves (New Melle Chamber of Commerce and NMSR volunteers) are busy planning and preparing for it. We need a bit of help! The event will be Saturday, November 26, at NMSR (New Melle Sports and Recreation) starting at 5 p.m.

Do you love to decorate for the Holidays, help your local community, and want to contribute in a meaningful way? Consider joining us and have fun while you’re at it! We will need help setting up and decorating before the event, and cleaning up after. (This could be a good opportunity for young people who need service hours or a great “give back to the community” project for a family or organization.) Please contact Carole at 636-828-5900 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

This event will feature family-friendly activities that are free to the public. (Visit with Santa, watch a magician, write and/or mail a letter to Santa, color a holiday picture, roast s’mores with the firefighters, sing along with the community choir, enjoy hot dogs and chili, and more.) Mark your calendars and plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
