Christmas in Williams Park lives on another year

Volunteers and money are needed for the annual holiday festival.

Christmas in Williams Park is a go for 2016.

The popular family oriented celebration will take place Dec. 5 through 17.

Right now the community can help ensure success for this year by stepping forward to volunteer.

“Also looking for volunteers to assist as public greeters during these times,” said Scott Johnson, a Township parks services coordinator.

As well, people can help with the set up and take down of decorations.

Volunteers are needed for set up Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Nov. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Takedown is scheduled for Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Another way to help is with a donation to the community event.

“Make a $250 donation to the Christmas in Williams Park Society and have your family or business name displayed on a decorated tree. Your support will be seen by thousands of community members,” Johnson explained.
