Volunteers needed to decorate downtown Kirkland for the holidays, Nov 17


Well, it's that time of year again. Time for me to beg and you to say yes to helping decorate Kirkland. This year should prove to be the most impressive we have ever had. I can't begin to tell you how many hours David DeBois at Banner Bank has put in. Everything is going to be so fabulous for our little ones and our shoppers.

Here are the details:

Who: anyone over 14 years of age

Date: Saturday, November 17th

Time: 8:30 AM for coffee and pastries

Where: Merrill Gardens main lobby - 201 Kirkland Ave.

At 9:00 AM go out to decorate in groups of 3 to 4

At noon or whenever we are done, we will be nourished at Merrill Gardens with pasta from George's and there will also be pizza and salad too.

Please bring pliers, cutters, gloves, extension ladders, medium ladder, 1 large 'A' frame ladder, gloves, warm clothing and for those of you with sensitive ears don't forget the ear muffs.

There is a need for 130 volunteers.

On behalf of everyone in the KDA let me say thank you in advance for always coming through. Kirkland has the very best citizens ever and I always get a little teary eyed when I think about how you always come through.

If you would like to join in on all this fun and get to know some of your neighbors better, this is a great opportunity.

REMINDER: Tree lighting ceremony is Saturday, December 1st.
