Join us for a great time of family fun at our Christmas in the Stables event!

Vendors will be there to help out any last minute Christmas shoppers, and music will keep the mood festive. Meet Santa and have your picture made by Chuck Friend Photography 6 to 8 pm on Friday or 2 to 4 pm on Saturday. Sitting fees are $5.00 that will be paid to the ranch, and then you can order individual photos directly from chuck’s website for an additional fee (see details/prices below).
Please bring canned goods to fill the remodeled pantry at the Salvation Army. Their pantry was damaged this past summer from the tornado and will be reopening up in 2019. Let’s fill it up with canned goods!
Hope4Healing and NEIA3A arelooking for gently used artificial trees to give to those who lost their decorations in the tornado also. Please give Hope4Healing a call at 1855-584-4673 if you would like to donate a tree or funds for a tree. The trees and decorations will be on display at the Christmas in the Stables event and then given to families afterwards. We hope to see you there!
