Thank you to the people of Arthur and surrounding area who attended these events, and supported our small business and not-for-profit organizations. The Village of Arthur is a very special community because of the people who live here, and who care about making it a welcome and safe place to raise families and thrive. Thank you to everyone who supported the Arthur Foodbank. In these trying times, there are so many people who are struggling to make ends meet and are in need of a little help, especially around the holidays. If you have not yet made a donation to the Arthur Foodbank, please consider doing so.

We have lots of wonderful ideas to try to bring more people together in the community for next year’s event, and hopefully make the Christmas Time in Arthur weekend a tradition that will last for many years to come. If you would like to get involved in the planning/organizing of next year’s Christmas Time in Arthur festivities, have some new ideas for events you would like to share, or would like to volunteer at one of the events, there will be a planning meeting in early 2024 that will be announced in the coming weeks. 

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and a safe, happy, and healthy 2024!

Warm Winter Wishes from Ronda Smith and Sheila Shaw, your Christmas Time in Arthur Co-coordinators
