The Galva Arts Council will be hosting a Christmas Wreath fundraiser during the annual Ol’ Fashioned Christmas festivities. 

This is the second year the Arts Council has hosted this new twist on the successful Mini Tree fundraiser from years past.

The Arts Council needs volunteers to pick up and decorate the wreaths in any way they want. The wreath decorations do not have to be Christmas/holiday themed. 

Wreaths will be available for pick up after Thursday, Nov. 1, at Galva Pharmacy or by arrangement with the Arts Council. 

Decorators can return the wreaths to the Galva Pharmacy or to an Arts Council member before Nov. 18.

On Nov. 24, the Galva Arts Council will be selling raffle tickets for the wreaths during the day and at that evening’s Coffeehouse. 

The Arts Council also will be hosting a soup lunch and a Make and Take craft. 

More information on the daytime events will be available later. Drawing for the wreaths will be on Nov. 24 following the Coffeehouse. You do not have to be present to win.
