Neighborhood Luminary Volunteers
 
SRWO Members  –
We are so excited to kick off the planning for our winter luminaries event on December 16th.  I believe this is going to be such a fun and exciting program that we can repeat year after year in our community! 
 
I know Carol updated many of you on our plans at the November meeting.  For those that could not attend the Nov. meeting we are seeking volunteers to assist with assembly of the luminaries as well as block captains who will be responsible for placing the lanterns out and removing them at the end of the evening.  I am sharing below a recap of keys dates/timing as well:
 
11/28 – seeking volunteers to distribute informative flyers to each home in SR
12/9 – seeking any volunteers who want to help assemble luminaries kits
This will be an assembly party @ 2214 Terrace Drive – kids are welcome to attend as well
We will have some cookies and hot chocolate as well as assemble block captain kits for the 12/16 event
12/16 – Block Captain(s) Shift 1: seeking volunteers who will place the lanterns out (by street)
Pick up your supplies at 2214 Terrace drive and place out luminaries (4 in front of each house)
12/16 – Block Captain(s) Shift 2: seeking volunteers who will collect luminaries
Collect luminaries and drop them off at 2214 Terrace Drive
There will be a dump bin for sand and a storage bin for bags and candles
