Christmas on the Corner

Here comes Santa Claus, Here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Southern Parkway!
He’s riding on a big red fire truck, instead of his usual sleigh.
Coming to greet all of Beechmont’s children waiting at the Gazebo. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Please join us on Friday, December 2nd, at 7:00 PM as we await Santa’s annual arrival at the Gazebo at Southern Parkway at Woodlawn Avenue. Santa will lead us in song as we walk to the library singing carols. Once there, we’ll find plenty of cookies and hot chocolate to enjoy while the children share their Christmas wishes with Santa.
We will also be having our annual cookie contest.
Please have your cookies to the Iroquois library by 6:30 PM if you would like to participate in the cookie contest. You can also donate cookies, even if you don’t wish to participate in the contest! Please make sure you have your name and address and phone number on your entry. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
This is a free event.
Thanks for your support and we hope to see you at the Gazebo!
