The Roundup -

Get Ready for Christmas Around the World, Sat. Nov. 26th


Plans for the 2016 Christmas Stroll are underway; the stroll will be the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 26th, from 3:00pm – 7:00pm with the Parade of Lights to follow. The theme this year is ‘Christmas Around the World’ and businesses are invited to participate by decorating their windows, choosing one country as their theme. Any business that would like to be involved can call 406-433-1800 for details.

The Parade of Lights is another great way that businesses, organizations, and non-profits can contribute to the fun, decorating a float and organizing volunteers to hand out candy during the parade.

The 14th annual Parade of Trees will be having their auction that day at 6:00pm at the MonDak Heritage Center, 120 3rd Ave SE. Trees are on display from Nov. 22nd – 26th, and the MonDak will be open that day at 10:00am; be sure to stop in and vote for the Best of Show, People’s Choice, Most Creative, and Best Wreath, and show your support for the Boys & Girls Club of Richland County and the MonDak Heritage Center.

There will be a community-wide BINGO game beginning that day, as well. Each BINGO square will have the logo of a participating business and when BINGO players stop into each business, they can get that logo stamped. Once the card is complete, with all the squares stamped, they can be turned in at participating retail stores. The center square can be stamped off by making a donation to the Food Bank Christmas Tree that will be housed at Ribbon & Rail. The BINGO cards will be available in the Roundup and Sidney Herald newspapers Wednesday, Nov. 23rd, as well as in businesses and the game will run for two weeks, with all completed cards needing to be in by Saturday, Dec.10th. Be sure to take some time to look around each business and do some Christmas shopping while you’re there! The winning BINGO card will be drawn the week of Dec. 12th and the winner will receive hundreds of dollars in Chamber Bucks.

Businesses will have vendors/side-walk sales outside of their stores from 4:00pm – 6:00pm, which is a great opportunity for non-profits. If you are a non-profit business that would like to be a vendor, please contact the business that you would like to be in front of to get their approval and work out the details.

Centre Theatre will be showing a free movie at 1:00pm, and the Sidney-Richland County Library will be showing Merry Christmas Charlie Brown at 3:00pm. The library will be open until 6:00pm and there is no charge for the movie. Join them for some festive fun and say ‘Hi’ to Santa while you’re there!

More details will be included as they are determined, including activities, services, and participating vendors.
