Some 16 people came earlier this week for an impromptu holiday observance at the bandstand in Oak Park, Joni Simpson reports.
Her sister, Julie Chyma, and other friends and relatives took up Julie's idea and decorated the classic bandstand in the spirit of the season on Nov. 30.
Now a special community event is planned for Sunday evening, Dec. 15 beginning at 5 p.m. at the bandstand in the park in the 1600 block of McClellan Street.
Carols will be sung and Santa Claus has made room in his busy schedule for an appearance.
The City of Tama will serve hot cocoa.
The event will be held weather permitting, Simpson said.
