2017 Christmas Tree!

A Visit From School 29

A big thank you goes out to the Arnett Branch Library, the Arnett Friends, the Rochester Fire Department, New Life Fellowship Church and the kids and grownups from Adlai Stevenson School #29 for decorating this year’s community Christmas tree in the garden park at the corner of Arnett and Wellington today!

They walked from school to the park with their teachers by classes – over 200 strong – with handmade decorations, little suet and seed bird and squirrel feeders, and cheerful faces singing songs, hugging Santa, and participating in library story-times. Special thanks go out to Susan and the Arnett Block Association for organizing this fun event!

Are you interested in holiday or winter themed books? If so, be sure to borrow some from the Arnett Branch Library!

Are you interested in coming out for some neighborhood caroling? If so, join the Arnett Block Association for songs around the tree on Dec 21st at 6:00 pm. Santa will be stopping by with hot chocolate and s’mores! And if the weather outside is too frightful we will move inside the Arnett Branch Library.
