The holiday season is right around the corner! As a resident of Grangeville, a few things always come to mind when you mention “Christmas” in Grangeville. Main Street is always spreading holiday cheer with beautiful garland and lights, the park is fantastic at night and children can hear Santa riding on the fire truck throughout town. Another tradition this town has is the beautiful, glowing cross which is lit for the duration of the holiday season and during Easter as well.
The Sno-Drifters snowmobile club has been maintaining the cross for many years. The club is also responsible for putting up the light strands, keeping them lit by replacing bulbs and taking the strands down during the summer months. The members of our club volunteer many hours to keep the cross lit for our town. We would like to continue this tradition; however, the cost of light bulbs and basic strand maintenance is quite expensive.
As a member of the Sno-Drifters myself, I would like to ask the community of Grangeville for donations to help with these costs. In the past, the club has been providing replacement materials with funds we receive through memberships. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and would be applied toward upgrading the cross to newer and better materials and also purchasing light bulbs.
An account has been set up at Sterling Bank under Sno-Drifters Cross Donation. The club would like to express their gratitude in advance for your support! If you have any questions, or would like to join our club, you may contact Phyllis Pottala at 983-0600, or me at 816-8188.
From the Sno-Drifters to you, Happy Holidays!
