'I'll Be Home for Christmas'


November 21, 2018

With the holidays approaching, it is time once again for the Sharon, Kansas, community to host their annual “I'll Be Home For Christmas” parade, soup supper and auction (rain or shine) on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Following the parade everyone is invited to the Parish Center where Santa will talk to the kids and hand out treats.

Santa will be putting out his special mailbox at the park again this year. Kids can put a letter to Santa in this special box and get a letter back from him; just be sure to put your name and address on your letter.


The Cookie Baking – Candy Making Contest is a fun way to try out new cookie and candy recipes. For information on this contest contact Jean Lyman at 620-294-5370.

The parade will start at 3 p.m. going from the co-op north up Main Street (Broadway) to the school. Parade questions may be directed to Shelia Dohm at 620-294-5530; or Sandy Blick at 620-294-5554.

The home decorating contest encourages folks to get their homes and yards all decked out. For information call Sheila Dohm at 620-294-5530, or Sandy Blick at 620-294-5554, to sign up to have their homes in the contest.

There will be a chili and soup supper sponsored by the St. Boniface PSR for a free will donation. Anyone interested in providing a dessert may call Shirley Ditgen at 620-294-5431.

An auction of items donated by individuals, families or businesses will follow the supper. Anyone with items to donate may contact Sandy Blick at 620-294-5554, Jean Lyman at 620-294-5570, or Karmen Vandeveer at 620-842-2174.
