Local holiday happenings to pump up your Christmas spirit

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.

A prize will be awarded for the ugliest holiday sweater worn to the program and for the ugliest holiday cookie decorated at the library. Yule snacks will be served and music will be played.

Call the library at 593-1608 to register.

CHRISTMAS TREASURE SALE, featuring gently used holiday decorations and toys, will be held 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Conneaut Arts Center, 1025 Buffalo St. Admission is free.

Donations will be accepted at the CAC through Dec. 4.

BREAKFAST WITH SANTA will be held 8 a.m.-noon Dec. 7 at the Monroe Township Volunteer Fire Department, 4095 Route 7.

Menu includes scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, french toast, maple syrup, orange juice and coffee. Cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children age 6-12. Kids five years and under eat for free.

Also, a cookie sale will be held at the same time and date. A one-pound plate of assorted cookies will cost $4. To pre-order, contact Shirley (594-3873) or Betty (594-3395).

All proceeds benefit the township’s fire department.
