Christmas Wreath Sales – The wreaths are scheduled for delivery to Madison Schools the morning of November 21st. If you can help unload, please be there by 7:30am that morning.
Comstock Christmas Tree River Walk ProjectREMEMBER: all we have to do as a club is simply to sell tress for $50 to individuals, businesses, etc. that they decorate themselves. They will be erected and lights will be put on them by the City. All you have to do is decorate them! We will have 160 trees available. The trees are set up and ready for decorating as they are sold. The official lighting will take [lace about 7:30pm on December 1 following the parade. Our club particularly needs to sell 50 of them this year. Flyers are ready to display or hand out to interested parties. An electronic version will also be sent for posting to your social media pages. We just need the customer’s name, address and check for $50 and drop off to Mark or Mary or at City Hall. The tree lighting will culminate the event. Date to be announced.
