GREENVILLE – They aren’t exactly Santa’s elves, but a group of women in this community come close.
The dozen or so women who call themselves the Deck the Halls Committee want to make sure everyone in the community ushers in the holiday season with a smile and that the town is well-lighted for Santa Claus.
Meeting since August, the committee has planned a daylong celebration Nov. 25 and has convinced just about every organization in the town to participate.
“It’s to help the community get into the holiday spirit,” committee member Beth Gaudet said Friday.
Gaudet said the celebration will include a public breakfast, a craft fair, activities for children, special sales at local stores, a parade, the annual lighting of the town’s Christmas tree, a public supper, and a dance.
Committee member Lea Watt said the event is designed to bring the town’s residents together as a community. “We’ve just tried to involve a lot of organizations,” she said.
The group is looking for donations of Christmas lights to string on the town’s tree on Nov. 5. It also welcome volunteers who want to help with the event, according to Gaudet. Anyone who wants more information or to make a donation may call Gaudet at 695-2421.
The committee will meet at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, in the Natural Resources Education Center building (the former Boon Chain Restaurant).
