The 4th Annual Decorate-a-Wreath Contest is here. Stop by the Rec Center and pick up your blank wreath beginning November 1. Take your wreath home and decorate it however you would like, then return your decorated wreath no later than November 26. Community members can vote for their favorite wreath during the ‘Christmas in the Park’ event on Dec. 4. There is no fee to participate and we will award the “Best Business” and “Best Individual” wreath following the event. Wreaths will be displayed during the month of December for everyone to enjoy!
LETTERS TO SANTA
Send your letter to Santa from Strasburg! All letters will be forwarded to SANTA at the North Pole, (no postage necessary). Santa has promised to send a personalized letter to your home. All letters need your child’s first and last name along with a return address (please print clearly). Drop-off letters by Dec. 17 to get a response—Santa is a very busy man this time of year!
