At the end of November, the park
district will host the 19th annual Pride of the Prairie Folk Art
and Craft Show. Reserve some time on Saturday, Nov. 30, between
8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to attend this juried show. The event each year
brings together a collection of the area's finest artisans and
craftsmen. Each exhibitor was selected for the quality and design of
their work. A wide variety of styles will be featured just in time
for holiday shopping. Included will be primitives, folk art,
watercolors, quilts, iron sculpture, jewelry and baskets, naming
only a few. Also new this year will be stained glass and fused glass
artists. Many of the shoppers in past years have found the perfect
stocking-stuffer or just the right piece for that difficult person
to buy for on their list.

The park district will still offer Treats with Santa again
this year. Bring children wanting to talk to Santa to the park
district on Saturday, Dec. 14. This event will begin at 9 a.m. and
conclude after the last child at 11 a.m. The park district will
offer Christmas games and a coloring contest along with milk and
cookies. While this announcement can't reveal everything that
happens on that magical morning, we can say that our Santa is the
one who is definitely in the know! Parents or others knowing what
the child got last year for Christmas should accompany the child.
This is being done in partnership with WLCN-FM 96.3 radio station in
Atlanta. The radio station will submit it to Comcast Channel 5.
