Home for the Holidays
Again this year, local organizations and businesses have been a flurry with holiday event planning, hoping to make this year’s holiday season one to remember.
Ladies Night Out
The fifth annual Ladies Night Out event is set for 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, beginning at City Hall. Participating local businesses will be offering one-night-only deals and other goodies.
The Chamber and Scooters are hosting a Comedy Night after the Ladies Night Event is over, beginning at 8:15 p.m.
Both kinds of tickets are available. The regular Ladies Night Out tickets include a Holiday Coupon Book, punch card (for the scavenger hunt), appetizers, wine and punch for $15. After you get your punch card stamped at the participating businesses, return the card to City Hall to be entered into a drawing for three $100 Chamber Gift Certificates.
The Comedy Night tickets are $10 each. Everyone over 21 is welcome to attend the Comedy Night. Tickets are limited.
For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 785-285-2139 or email email@example.com.
Letters to Santa
Children are invited to write letters to Santa, and The Sabetha Herald and Sabetha Chamber of Commerce will help make sure they are delivered.
Letters should include the child’s full name, age and mailing address. All letters received by Friday, Dec. 1, will receive a hand-written reply from Santa!
All letters — and if desired, a submitted photo of the child — also will be published at no charge in The Sabetha Herald’s Christmas Greetings Special Supplement on Dec. 20.
Please send letters in one of the following ways:
Hand Deliver: Santa’s Mailbox, located inside Sabetha City Hall, between now and Dec. 1
Mail: Santa’s Mailbox, PO Box 208, Sabetha KS 66534
With the theme, “Inside Santa’s Workshop,” Sabetha’s annual Window Opening is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 24.
Throughout the evening, attendees can shop at downtown businesses, visit vendors along the downtown streets or at the Christmas Market at Sabetha City Hall, take a horse-drawn wagon ride and much more.
Santa Claus will arrive at City Hall by fire truck at Sabetha City Hall at 6 p.m., sponsored by Sabetha Chamber of Commerce. After his arrival, he will be available for photo opportunities inside the large commission room at City Hall, until 8 p.m.
Local music groups will provide musical entertainment. Sabetha High School Odyssey and Infinity will perform at the corner of Main and 11th Streets at 6:15 p.m.
A number of food vendors and opportunities are planned, including a free hot meal beginning at 6 p.m. at United Bank and Trust.
The Sabetha Chamber of Commerce will be sponsoring a Best Decorated Window contest, in which attendees are encouraged to drop change into the Christmas House located at the business to vote for its window. All proceeds will benefit the Sabetha Food Pantry.
Also providing an opportunity for residents to give back locally, in conjunction with Window Opening the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation will be hosting its walk-in Give to Grow charity drive from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 905 Main Street in downtown Sabetha. Through this campaign, matching funds are being offered for a number of charitable causes.
