It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Kampsville thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, Rob Parameter, Shawn Shewemake, Jon Wankel and Bob Gardner. Thank you, Mark Becker, for supplying the bucket truck and assisting. The Kampsville American Legion donated the new bulbs to replace the ones that had gone bad. We are truly blessed here in Kampsville that we have guys that are always willing to step up.
Don’t forget to get your Queen of Hearts tickets at the Legion. Our Legion is so giving not only did they donate the lights for the decorations they also donate along with the auxiliary all of the candy for Santa to give out at the Christmas Party.
There will be a vendor event Saturday, Dec. 17, at the Landing. Amy and Teresa will be raffling some baskets for the town Christmas party and Amy and Emily McBride have graciously offered to run a Bake Sale to help with the party. We definitely can use bakers.
My trusty crew, Olivia and Ava Clowers, Reagan Clendenny, Michelle Kallal, Linda Hazelwonder and I left the house at 3:30 a.m. to head to Springfield on Black Friday for a day of shopping and bargains. We found a lot of great gifts for the party as well as some raffle items. Debby and Tonya Klunk also shopped the day away getting things for the party. Mark your calendars for Sunday, Dec. 18, from 5-7 p.m. at the Center for American Archeology Gym.
Saturday, Dec. 3, Christmas in Calhoun is from 1-6 p.m. on Main Street in Hardin and Elf School.
Sunday, Dec. 4, is the Calhoun High School Band Concert at the Calhoun Elementary School.
Monday, Dec. 12, St. Norbert’s will host its Live Nativity from 6:30-7 p.m. This is a drive-thru event. If you’ve never taken the opportunity to drive by and see it, you are sure missing out. It’s absolutely wonderful and the kids have so much fun doing it.
Make sure to take a drive to the top of Rocky Hill and make a left to enjoy Christmas in the Woods on Sievers Lane. It’s absolutely wonderful.
