Senior Advocates, churches team up with Crisis Center for Turkey to Table Nov. 22

SOLON– The Solon Senior Advocates and Our Lord’s Church, St Mary Catholic Church and the Solon United Methodist Church have plans to partner with the Crisis Center of Johnson County to create a food pantry in the very near future to serve this quadrant of Johnson County. Although a food pantry has not yet been established in Solon, this group along with help from Bridge Community Bank, are organizing a “Turkey to Table” ready-to-cook Thanksgiving meal to be delivered to area families who otherwise might not have a Thanksgiving dinner.

Our Lord’s Church candy and gift sale Dec. 2-3

SOLON– Our Lord’s Church will be holding its annual candy sale Friday, Dec. 2, from 3-7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 3, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Featured are a large variety of homemade candies as well as gifts and homemade items. Santa Claus will greet children at the sale from 1-3 p.m. on Dec. 3. Enjoy a cup of coffee and work your way around the room and select your items.

Poinsettia and jar mix orders due

Less than a week remains for pre-ordering holiday poinsettias and jar mix gift items from the Friends of the Solon Library. Deadline for ordering is Tuesday, Nov. 21. The Friends will once again have poinsettias from Joyce’s Greenhouse in North Liberty. Only a very small number of cash and carry will be ordered so don’t delay. Order forms are available at the library, on the website or by emailing solonlibrfriends@aol.com. The annual holiday sale will be the first weekend in December. Pick up for pre-ordered items will be during the sale.

Santa party Dec. 3

The library is beginning a new tradition with Santa this year. In previous years, Santa has made an evening appearance at the library. This year, Santa will be visiting the library on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10-11 a.m. Bring the kids or grandkids and your cameras for some candid shots as your child has a little one-on-one visit with Santa. There will be crafts to do in the meeting room and Santa will have a treat for all his visitors. Moms and grandmas can pick up their poinsettia orders and do a little shopping at the Friends sale in the meeting room at the same time.

Poster unveiling and kick-off

Framed posters, “Of Time and Place” are currently on display at the library, Solon State Bank and Bridge Community Bank. The official unveiling of the new Toni Russo fundraising poster for the Friends of the Library will take place at the holiday sale event. Cost is $10 for unframed posters and $25 for framed posters, with discounts for multiple orders. Early orders may be placed by email to SolonLibrFriends@aol.com or call Sue at 319-624-2632.

Tree decorating contest begins

The last decorated tree is in place in the reading area at the west end of the library, so let the contest begin. Entries have been received from individuals, families, clubs and businesses with proceeds from the event benefiting Solon Habitat for Humanity.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place as well at the Humanity Award. Trees will be judged for placement by the tree committee. The newly formed tree judging committee will take the place of the public vote from previous years. The community will vote for the Humanity Award.
