To The Daily Sun,
The Gilford Candlelight Stroll Committee has been working since January planning for our third annual stroll on Saturday, Dec. 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. The horse and wagon ride has been booked. Once again, there will be a big bonfire at the Village Field, thanks to the volunteer efforts of the members of the Fire Department and Public Works. The library will again be offering the young people the opportunity to make a holiday ornament in its Children's Room and there will be line dancing in its meeting room — fun for all ages, thanks to its many volunteers.
Many volunteers are still needed to help make this stroll a success. Without candles there would be no Candlelight Stroll. Two volunteers are doing the big job of getting the candles into the hundreds of bags. This is a bid help. We need volunteers to light the candles (Maybe homeowners would light those in front of their homes?), and volunteers to put out the lights and help to collect the bags with the holders so they can be used again.
The Middle High School, along with the Elementary School, will have students from their choruses out caroling. However, two hours is a long time for anyone to be out in the cold singing, more volunteers who like to sing or play a musical instrument would be greatly appreciated.
The Candlelight Stroll is an event that can be enjoyed by all, thanks to the many volunteers who donate their time. We thank those who have donated so we may have candles to line the street, to be able to offer the wagon ride, and to have flyers so visitors may be able to see what activities are being offered and at what times. However, we still need volunteers, so please contact any of the above named people to help.
