If you share the city of Shawnee with us, or just live locally, there are a couple of Christmas-related items that I wanted to share:
First, the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund is open for donations. The City sells ornaments for $5, which will then be placed on the Mayor’s Christmas tree. All funds then go to Head Start of Shawnee Mission. It seems like a no-brainer to skip a lunch out and help out a low income child and their family. See more details here: Christmas Tree Fund
Second, Shawnee puts on an event known as ‘Christmas Around Town.’ This event takes place on Saturday, Dec 6, starting in the afternoon and continuing into the evening. Events include the Mayor’s Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, a visit from Santa, carriage rides, and even live reindeer! If this event doesn’t get you geared up for Christmas, then I don’t know what will. After the event, come by our display and cap of the evening with some lights!
