Luminaries: Light the Manor on Christmas Eve

The Greater Gladstone Civic Association will sell luminaries for decoration on sidewalks and front walks on Christmas Eve. A long held tradition, luminaries warm the neighborhood, providing a beautiful effect on this special night.

Luminaries are available at the cost of six for $6.00. (Each set of six includes six bags, sand, and candles.) Orders must be pre-paid via cash or check (made payable to Greater Gladstone Civic Association). All profits go to the Greater Gladstone Civic Association.

Please complete the contact form by Thursday, December 19, 2013 to order luminaries.

The Santa Claus Mailbox

The Santa mailbox returns to the “Island,” (DeForest and Walsh Roads). Write a letter to the man in red sharing your holiday wish list and filling him in on your activities this year. Drop it in the magical mailbox and Mr. Claus may find time in his busy December schedule to reply.

This year the mailbox will accept letters from the tree lighting on Saturday, December 7, 2013 through Saturday, December 21, 2013.

To receive a reply from Santa, please ensure letters include the sender’s first name and street address (house number and street).
