Christmas in Williams Park needs Langley elves to help with prep

Christmas decorators are asked to help ready Williams Park.

The Township of Langley is looking for volunteers who like to paint.

On Friday, Nov. 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. helpers will be preparing plywood cutouts for Christmas in Williams Park, noted arts and culture programmer Hannah Bennett.

“We’ll be cleaning some of them off and retouching some and repainting some,” she said.

The activity will be in the Williams Park hut and under the covered picnic area in the park so volunteers are advised to dress in layers for the wet, cool weather. Supplies are provided.

Many of the cutouts were donated by local families.

“They have such a lovely hand-created quality,” she noted.
