It is the time of year again when we start planning for the annual Christmas on Market Street event. So many of you have great ideas, are great at planning events, and genuinely want to see our community continue to thrive. The theme for this year’s event is “Treasured Memories” which will be fun to work with, and the theme can go in so many directions as to your actual treasured memories.
Now that the fair parade is over, we will begin planning for the annual Christmas on Market Street event. The event will held Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, which sounds like a long time from now, but will be here before we know it. We would love to make this year the best event we have had so far.
If any of you have any ideas or are interested in helping plan, please let me know. We have some traditional events that need someone new to take over. We need lots of volunteer help. We also are interested in any new events you might like to add. If you own a business or are part of a community group, this is a great time for you to be a part of a fun community event. Let’s get together and make this great.
Christmas on Market Street events will include the annual raffle, parade, chili cook off and Kiwanis breakfast.
An organizational meeting for anyone wanting to volunteer will be at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 23, at Artfully Quilted by Barbs. Call Jeanette Swarts at 785-249-5451 if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
