Upcoming "Christmas Store" Gives Kids Freedom to Pick Out Gifts
This Saturday (December 3rd), and for the first time since 2019, the Women's Club in Anaconda will have just that; a Christmas Store designed specifically for children "only" to shop for their loved ones. It's an exciting experience for the kiddos. Volunteers will be on-site to help these young shoppers pick out up to 8 items priced at ONLY $1 each. Community members over the past month brought in donations and gifts, so the selection is expected to be great! Volunteers will also be there to wrap all chosen gifts. Here's where to bring your youngster for a shopping experience like no other this Saturday: Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall at 106 Cherry in Anaconda. The Christmas Store will be open from 9 a.m. until noon. Proceeds will go towards AJHS Women's Club Scholarships. Let the shopping begin!
Thousands Fill the Streets for Anaconda's Christmas Stroll Friday
Thousands Fill the Streets for Anaconda's Christmas Stroll Friday
It was a night to remember as thousands of holiday enthusiasts filled the streets of The Smelter City for the Anaconda Christmas Stroll this past Friday! The festivities began with an awe-inspiring lighted parade that started on Main Street and made its way back to Kennedy Common for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and a much-anticipated visit from Santa Clause. Then came an intense moment as participants waited around the majestic ceremonial tree to see if they would be the winner of the grand prize giveaway of $1500! As it turned out, the proprietor of that prize money went to Teresa Tyler of Wyoming, who was visiting family for the holiday season. Excellent work, Teresa!
