Press release submitted by Fulton Chamber of Commerce|
For the second year in a row, the Fulton Chamber of Commerce has created a community art project for the Fulton Christmas Walk. Last year, the Chamber sold 3-foot trees for businesses, organizations, and individuals to decorate and donate for a silent auction fundraiser. This year, the Chamber will have 24" wreaths for sale with proceeds benefiting new Christmas lights for the downtown light poles. The wreaths will cost $15. A preview night showcasing the decorated wreaths will be held Thursday, December 5, from 5pm to 6:30pm, at the Fulton Masonic Lodge. A silent auction for the wreaths will be part of the Christmas Walk festivities on Friday, December 6, from 5pm to 7:30pm at the Masonic Lodge. The Chamber can only accept wreaths purchased through their organization. Orders for wreaths must be made by November 6, 2013. Mail or drop off a check to the Fulton Chamber Office, 415 11th Avenue, Fulton, IL 61252. For more information, please contact Heather Bennett at 815-589-4545 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
