New Melle’s Country Christmas will be Saturday, November 24, at NMSR (New Melle Sports and Recreation) starting at 4:00 p.m. The event will feature family-friendly activities that are free to the public.
Visit with Santa (who will arrive at 5:30 by Fire Truck,) write and/or mail a letter to Santa, decorate a holiday cookie, roast s’mores at the fire pits, sing along with the community choir, enjoy a juggler, a magician, complimentary food and beverages sponsored by area businesss owners, and more.
As in the past, there will be a collection for “Teddy Bears for Trevor.” (Please bring a new Teddy Bear to be given to hospitalized children at Christmas.)
New this year will be a “Freeze Out” booth. In exchange for your donation of a canned good or piece of clothing for the needy, volunteers will remove an article of clothing (down to shorts and a t-shirt). No one gets redressed until all the volunteers are down to their last layer. Come and watch them shiver for a good cause!
