Christmas at Leech Lake

Christmas at Leech Lake

December 5, 2012


Twas the time before Christmas, when all through Leech Lake
All the people were stirring, like they saw a mouse!
The families were shopping to fill stockings with care,
While hoping that ice-fishing season would soon be there!


Well Minnesota, it’s that time of year again. When the houses are alight with twinkling bulbs and the tune of “Jingle Bells” once again fills our ears. Stars and angels will adorn the tops of trees, and the children are writing their lists to Ole St. Nick! While there may not be a lot of snow on the ground, our Christmas spirits are in full swing here in the Leech Lake Area.


As the time old tradition goes, it’s a must to see Santa before Christmas! The First National Bank in Walker is inviting everyone to their open house from 11:30-1pm on Friday, December 7th.  Bring the whole family to take pictures and let Santa know how very good you’ve been this year!


Don’t miss “A Taste of Christmas” at the Northern Lights Event Center in Walker this Sunday.  All proceeds from activities such as their silent auction will benefit the Tianna Country Club Capital Campaign. What better way to celebrate during this Christmas season than giving back to a good cause?


We know we’re not the only ones in the Leech Lake area that like to procrastinate! If you need to squeeze in a bit of last minute Christmas shopping then check out Next Innovations Factory Outlet Holiday Sale in Walker.  December 14th and 15th they will be offering a variety of home décor items and more at discount prices.


So spring to your homes, and to your families give a whistle,
And away will fly that wrapping paper like the down of a thistle.
You’ll hear an exclamation, one of pure delight,
Happy Christmas Leech Lake, and to all a good-night!
