Local Holiday Happenings

The Christmas season is fast approaching and with it comes a number of local Holiday Happenings around the community.
Starting off the celebration is the annual Community Choir Christmas Concert, “Christmas in His Presence,” on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. at the Woonsocket Community Center. Preceding this inspiring concert, the Lutheran-Methodist Parish Bell Choir will perform several numbers. There is no charge for the concert, but everyone is urged to bring non-perishable items for the Sanborn County Food Pantry.
Following the concert will be a community potluck meal. All are invited.
Once again the Sanborn County Courthouse is hosting “The Parade of Trees”. County residents, organizations and businesses are invited to bring an artificial tree (no lights) to the Courthouse and decorate it in their own style. There is no particular theme, just use good taste. To let them know of your intentions to bring a tree, contact Courthouse employees, Diane Larson (796-4513) or Lynn Brueske (796-4516) by Nov. 20 so a plan of trees can be made to accommodate everybody.
The trees should be in place between Nov. 30 and Dec. 8, remain until after the New Year and be removed by Jan. 8. The trees can be viewed any day the Courthouse is open, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
They are planning an open house on Friday, Dec. 11 from 1-4:30 p.m. with Courthouse employees serving coffee, cookies, bars and cider. The Community Choir will sing a few numbers at 2 p.m. and Santa will be present from 3-4:30 p.m. For fun, a scavenger hunt with some county trivia and such is also being planned.
County residents are also urged to decorate their homes and businesses with lights, signs, etc., to brighten the season.
