The Atlantic Rotary Club is holding a raffle now through November 17th, to help fund repairs to “Santa’s Cabin,” in the Atlantic City Park at 6thand Poplar Streets.
Santa was in Atlantic this past week to inspect his cabin.
Contractors have indicated that if some of the logs at the base of the cabin aren’t replaced in the next year or two, the entire structure might be lost within the next 5 to 10 years.
Tickets for the raffle will be available until the 30th Annual Atlantic Rotary Club Auction on November 17th. They can be purchased at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce, First Whitney Bank, Great Western Bank, Nishna Valley Family YMCA and Meyer and Gross Real Estate. Tickets are $20 for one and $100 for six with the prizes being $1,000 cash for the first recipient drawn, $1,500 for second, $3,000 for the third.
The Atlantic Holiday Grand Lighting will take place Nov. 15th. A holiday musical performance by Haylee Glenn will begin the Lighting activities at 5:30 p.m. followed by the appearance of Santa and Ellie the Elf, who will ask for the audience’s holiday spirit to help them turn on the lights. Free carriage rides, hot cocoa and popcorn will also be available. Santa will be in his cabin for the first visits with area children after the lighting also.
