Imagine Christmas in 1940′s….you can make that a reality this Christmas. Come to Cookies and Milk with Santa and celebrate! 2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of the classic 1983 film, The Christmas Story. The Horicon Chamber of Commerce will transform the City Hall to look like an old fashioned 1940’s Christmas according to Ralphie to welcome Santa December 14th 10 am to noon.
The line waiting to see Santa Claus will not stretch all the way back to Terre Haute because you can sign up for a ticket and have fun while you wait: decorate cookies, drink milk (chocolate or vanilla), assemble Legos, color or write a letter to Santa. Email the chamber to sign up early! Each child will receive a full Christmas stocking to take home. Last year the Chamber started a tradition of taking the left over stockings to our two senior citizens homes in Horicon.
New this year is a costume contest…one prize each will be awarded to an adult and child who dress up as one of the characters in the movie.
Thanks go to the Horicon Chamber of Commerce businesses who contribute funds, props, food and time to make this a special event for each family in Horicon.
Ho Ho Ho Christmas is on its way.
Lovely, glorious, beautiful Christmas,
upon which the entire kid year revolved.

Does Cousin Clarence collect cobweb covered carvings? Is your Uncle Fred infatuated with French firearms? It’s time to quit hoarding and start sharing! It’s time for the Archaeology Roadshow! The annual rock River Archaeology road show is a special program held each year in December that features members and guests sharing their artifacts. Remember that an artifact is any object that has been mad or modified by humans, so it can include just about anything that you have. The Rock River Archaeology Society will have a special guest “artifact expert” who can help to identify some your items. Audience members are often also experts in everything from antique weapons to old farm tools to pottery. The event is not for appraisals, but al about learning and sharing. You never know what strange artifacts and mysterious items you might encounter and what interesting things you might learn. Please park and enter through the lower entrance of the building new the auditorium entrance. Grab an artifact and a friend and come to the show! For more information call 920-387-7893.
