Christmas in Lime Springs

Get ready for another busy day in town when the 17th annual Christmas in Lime Springs is celebrated this Sunday, Dec. 2.

Most of the day’s events take place in and around the Community Center. Although, Hairport will be open and serving treats. Alisha Kluender will also be having some Sunday specials. Check out the specials on page 3 of this paper.

The main draw of the day (until the arrival of Santa) is the craft show, which opens at noon in the Community Center and Fire Station. Over 20 vendors are scheduled to display their wares. Many will have one-of-a-kind items for those hard-to-buy-for family members and friends. Others will have presentations and complimentary gifts.

The craft and vendor show is so popular chairman Betty Roesler had to turn quite a few people away. Some of the old favorites have been replaced with some new favorites. Vendors who have a spot on Sunday include:

• Karla Murphy—Norwex

• Betty Mohs—Rag rugs

• Ashley Olson and Kerri Smith—Scentsy candles, candle warmers, Christmas mixes in a jar, etc.

• Lidtke Mill

• Lime Springs Swimming Pool

• Lime Springs Library

• Family Fun & Fitness

• Community Youth

• Lime Springs Children’s Theatre Troupe—Cookie and cocoa mixes

• Linda Dolly—Tupperware

• Holly Munkel—Paparrazi Jewelry

• Kelly Larson—Baby items

• Kathy Adams—Cosmetics

• Tracey Rice—Homemade western jewelry, belts and billfolds

• Dana Lund—Purses, wallets and sunglasses

• Marcia Bannister—Pampered Chef

• Suzie Balk—Candy and cookie baskets

• Charlotte McCarroll—Birdcage Jewelry

• Leland Dierser—Watkins products

• David Perkins—Handmade ornaments and jewelry

• Deb Sweets—Homemade candy

• Mary Wherry—Gazing balls and jewelry

• Sally Bestor—Pot holders and painted envelopes

• A silent auction basket raffle is also taking place with proceeds going to the Community Center. So far it sounds as though there is a large and varied selection of baskets—including ones geared toward children, games/movies, water fun, wine and certificates for gifts and food.

In between shopping and visiting, folks can always get a nice bowl of free chili. Serving begins at noon until gone, with a free-will donation.

This year the popular Lime Springs Methodist Church Chime Choir will be performing, starting at 2:00. Sometime that afternoon, the winner of the Candlelight Festival of Trees decorating contest will be presented a $25 prize.

Then it is the long-awaited arrival of Santa at 3:00. St. Nick will be arriving by horse and wagon—to give Rudolph and his crew a break. Afterwards, Steve Davis will give wagon rides around town the rest of the afternoon.
