Winterfest on 2nd Street South
December 10, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Saturday, December 10 will be the first ever Winterfest on Second Street S, 11:00am-1:00pm, sponsored by the Friends of the Mill District. We are a small, neighborhood charity and our mission is to build community in the Mill District by connecting, convening, and supporting our neighbors. This event is certainly part of convening and connecting with horse and carriage rides, hot chocolate, Farmers Market, a photo booth, caroling, and sledding and snowman building.
We also want to support our neighbors. This wonderful Mill District has 26% of our population living below the poverty level. Often invisible in this district of plenty, we want to make sure that everyone is seen and everyone is supported.
We are asking people to help support our neighbors by dropping off donations at Cynthia Froid Group (across from the Mill City Museum). People Serving Peopleis always in need of diapers, and any size is welcome. YouthLink needs hats, mittens and scarves, as well as any type of outerwear for youth ages 16-24. Donations of money or gift cards can also be dropped off.
If you love to sing, join the Friends of the Mill District Singers who will be caroling during the Winterfest. We will begin at the Guthrie, and will sing at various locations along 2nd Street. Join us! All are welcome! You don’t have to be a member of the Singers to join us. We just want to sing together.
