Woodmore Community Christmas Fund
The volunteers of Woodmore Community Christmas Fund are collecting donations to assist local families that need a little help during the holidays. Donation stations are at Jo’s Nite Club and Speedtrap Diner in Woodville and the Portage Inn and Christy’s Corner Cafe in Elmore. All funds collected will be used for food, clothing, books, and toys for families in the Woodmore community. For more information or to nominate a recipient, contact Larry Lowe at 419-680-6373. All information is private and confidential.
Calendar fundraiser for Food Pantry
If you know Woodville resident Matt Hammer, then you may have seen a few of his calendar photos on his Facebook page. He and friend, Mason Frantz, have turned those photos into an official 2023 calendar to raise funds for the Woodville Food Kitchen.
Copies of this truly unique calendar will soon be available for a donation of $10 each at the Village Barber Shop, which is fitting as the barber shop was once owned by Hammer’s family. A Secret Santa has covered the cost of printing so all of the proceeds from the calendar sale will be donated to the food pantry. But don’t delay as only a limited number of copies will be available and many of those have already been spoken for since the calendar was announced last week.
The Harris-Elmore Fire Department’s Santa Parade will be Dec. 17. Line-up will begin at 8 p. m. at the Woodmore High School parking lot. Santa will arrive in 8: 30 p. meters. to lead the parade through Elmore to view holiday decorations and to wave at village residents. The parade will end at the high school, followed by a meet and greet with Santa.
