Fill an empty stocking / Share the gift of reading

Leo Brinda Post 90 and the Sons of the American Legion in Valentine are sponsoring the annual Fill An Empty Stocking and Share the Gift of Reading projects. Parents and guardians who wish to sign up their children need to fill out the forms at Union Bank & Trust on Highway 20 in Valentine on or before Tuesday December 15.

A Christmas tree poster will be placed in the Veterans Club window, with each un-adopted family of children represented. Each note will display the family number, gender and age of each child in that family. Local folks may choose a number and adopt a “family of children”. Please phone 376-2443 to adopt on or BEFORE December 16. After adopting, select gifts of your choice, wrap them, mark them with age, gender, and family number; and then drop them off on the porch at 427 North Main Street.

The deadline to turn in “adopted family donations” and books is Wednesday December 16.

Books are also needed for children of all ages (1-18). Please donate books in new or in very good condition that you know your own children or grandchildren would enjoy. Drop boxes for books are located at the Valentine Library Lobby, Plains Trading Company Booksellers, Valentine Elementary School and the porch at 427 North Main Street. These books will be sorted and distributed to the children who benefit from the “Fill An Empty Stocking” project chaired by Leo Brinda Post 90 and the Sons of the American Legion.

Delivery of these Christmas gifts and books will take place on Saturday December 19 at 8AM. For more information please phone 402-376-2443. Post 90 and the Sons are hopeful that no children will be left out and are very grateful for the community’s help with this annual holiday project that fills the heart of both the giver and the child.


The People’s Choice Christmas Tree Contest

Valentine’s Heart of Christmas Celebration on November 28th is fast approaching.  As a way to say thank you to the Valentine Business Community the Heart of Christmas Committee has planned some exciting events.  One event in particular, the People’s Choice Christmas Tree Contest was designed to encourage the public to spend time in our Valentine Businesses.

There has been an exceptional response to this event.  However, the committee is still in need of inspired civic organizations, clubs, groups, or families to place theme decorated Christmas trees in the participating businesses.

The trees will be judged by the public via a punch card system from November 21st to November 28th.  Punch cards can be picked up at Plains Trading or Janine’s Flower Exchange starting November 21st.  To judge the trees simply visit the participating businesses to view the trees and get your punch card stamped.  Once you have viewed all the trees and picked your two favorites return the completed punch card to Country Pride Coop at 272 N Main St by 8:00 pm on November 28th.  Winning trees will receive Chamber Bucks, $100 to first place and $50 to second place.  One lucky punch card participant will win $25 in Chamber Bucks.

If you would like to decorate a People’s Choice Christmas Tree please contact  Eve Millar at 402-425-3303 before Wednesday November 18th so the tree can be placed before the beginning of the contest on November 21st.
