Volunteer Now to Help with “New Melle Country Christmas” Nov. 25

New Melle’s Country Christmas will be Saturday, November 25, at NMSR (New Melle Sports and Recreation) starting at 4:30 p.m.

The planning committee is hard at work and could use a little help. 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.)

This event will feature family-friendly activities that are free to the public. We will also be collecting Teddy Bears for Trevor (to be given to hospitalized children at Christmas.) Visit with Santa (who will arrive at 5:30 by Fire Truck,) 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 a balloon artist, food and beverages, and more.

We are currently looking for sponsors to provide some of the food, refreshments, and activities. Contact Jill Carrier (above) for more information.
Mark your calendars now and plan to share in the holiday cheer!
