Items sought for Eagles Kids’ Christmas sale


It's Your Business Lorie Palmer 983-1200

Happy December! Isn’t time zooming by? Don’t forget to enjoy the moments and make the memories!

Do you have some new or gently used items that you do not need? The Eagles will host a Kids’ Christmas Sale Saturday, Dec. 13, beginning at 10 a.m. My girls participated in this for years. It is a fun shopping experience for children to be able to purchases affordable Christmas gifts for their families. If you have some items to donate, I would be glad to take them here at the Free Press and make sure they get to the Eagles. Thanks to Jamie Russell for picking up a couple bags of stuff from me last week. All items are needed, but especially things for men: gloves, socks, hats, flashlights – you name it. Know the day of the sale there will be cookies and beverages available for purchase as well as a place for parents to sit and relax while their kids shop and have their presents wrapped by awesome community volunteers!
