I hope everyone had a lovely and blessed Thanksgiving. I had a house full. We played games and ate way too much. Kampsville just keeps getting more festive, thanks to some helper elves.
The Kampsville Legion and Sons of the American Legion Post #1083 put the Village Christmas Decorations on the poles. A huge thank you to Bob Gardner, John Wankle, Chuck Titus, Robert Parmenter, and Mark Becker.
The Lite-up Kampsville Elves, lit up the Kampsville Legions fence and it looks fantastic coming into town. They just wanted to spread a little holiday cheer and say thanks to the guys who give back so much to our community. A lot of people took advantage of the warmer temperatures and got those lights up. Drive to Kampsville and enjoy how lit up we are.
Don’t forget also to enjoy Christmas in the Woods on Sievers Lane. The students at St. Norbert’s decorated their Christmas Tree at Rock Springs Park in Alton. If you get a chance to drive through there make sure to vote for your favorite tree.
Mark Becker was the lucky contestant on Friday night who had a chance to draw for the Queen of Hearts but unfortunately, Becker drew the Jack of Hearts. Better luck next time. Get your tickets for our queen still haven’t been found. Don’t forget that on Saturday night, St. Anselm
will host the turkey and ham game night. Games begin at six. All proceeds benefit the St. Anselm Cemetery Fund. There will be food available for all to enjoy.
This Sunday, on Dec. 5, the Calhoun Unit 40 Band will present their Christmas concert at 2 p.m in the Elementary and Junior High Gym.
The pre-K class in Hardin last week visited Subway. They learned all about how restaurants worked. Upon returning to school the children all made their own sandwiches. I think Beth and the Subway employees enjoyed it just as much as the kids. The Kampsville Kids Christmas Party will be on Sunday, Dec. 19, at the Center for American Archeology Gym.
There will be lots of games, fun and prizes. Santa Clause will be visiting from the North Pole and he will be giving out gifts to Every kid who attends the party.
Thank you to Mary Ann Eaker, Trivent Lutheran and the Sons of the Legion for their generous donation towards presents. Also we will need baked goods and treats for the treat walk, so if you would like to help out let me know.
We currently have some of our raffle baskets at the landing and at the Bank of Kampsville
My helpers Reagan Clendenny, Olivia, Emily and Ava Clowers, Michelle Kallal and Alissa and Linda Hazelwonder and I did some Black Friday shopping bright and early on Friday we left our houses at 4 am and got lots of things for the party. We always have a good time planning this out. This was the first year my sister ,Linda, ever got to go with us on Black Friday. She retired from Walmart last February and we enjoyed having her shop with us.
Last Tuesday, the Joe Page Bridge was shut down for very necessary repairs. A huge shout out to Craig Johnson and the IDOT employees, who got it done in such a timely manner. A huge shout out to both the guys at the Kampsville Ferry and the Brussels Ferry who kept traffic running smoothly in and out of the county due to the bridge being closed. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
