CONNEAUT — Pump up your Christmas spirit with some of the many local holiday happenings on tap in the coming days. Just add eggnog and shake like a bowl full of jelly:
HOLIDAY CARDS for military personnel around the world at being collected at Conneaut Public Library and other libraries in Ashtabula County.
Cards may be dropped off at the Conneaut, Ashtabula County District, Geneva, Harbor-Topky, Henderson Memorial, Kingsville and Conneaut libraries by Dec. 4.
All cards must be signed and a generic greeting — such as “Dear Service Member” — should be used. Cards for specific military personnel will not be delivered. Do not insert gift cards, letters, photos or glitter. Cards will be screened for hazardous material and appropriate material by American Red Cross volunteers.
HOLIDAY PARTY will be held 4:30-6:30 p.m. Dec. 5 at Conneaut Public Library, 304 Buffalo St.
The event will feature photo opportunities with Nora the Reindeer, a visit from Santa Claus, a book fair, Clifford the Big Red Dog, author Burt Cole and crafts. Call the library to reserve a seat.
JINGLE BELL ROCK is an after-school fun event 4-5:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Conneaut Public Library, 304 Buffalot St., for kids in grades 6-8.
