Christmas In Minier


Well, the frost is on the pumpkins and there is a crisp nip in the air!  That can only mean that the holidays are fast approaching.  The Olympia Kiwanis Club is busy planning the 2019 Christmas Parade!  This year’s theme is A Classic Country Christmas.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 30th and line Main Street in Minier to usher in the holiday season.  The Parade starts at 4 p.m.  Santa will arrive on the parade route and will then greet children at the Classic Country Christmas Event from 5 - 8 pm. He will have TWO of his reindeer with him, as well. Don't forget the vendor fair from 9am - 5pm that day, and the Pancake and Sausage Breakfast from 6 am - 10 am at the Minier Fire Department!

If you as an individual or your club, church, business or organization wishes to enter a float, please scroll to the bottom of the page to access the application form.  Prizes will be given for floats. 

Again, this year, the Olympia Kiwanis Club will sponsor the town-wide Decorating Contest.  Dig out the lights & decorations and put your home or business in the holiday spirit.  Three prizes will be awarded for the best decorations.

The Olympia Kiwanis Club serves the children and schools of the Olympia District. We are proud to sponsor the Olympia Key Club, which is the student organization of Kiwanis International.  Our Olympia students provide service to the schools, their neighborhoods and our communities.  Each year the Kiwanis Club gives a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior who has given outstanding service.  Our thanks to Connie Schroeder who is the Key Club sponsor.

Why not consider joining this active organization in making our communities and our schools a better place to live, work, and learn.  Contact Carolyn Hansen, President, at 309-392-1700.
