Help find the holiday cure

To the Editor,

We all remember the magic of the Christmas season when the city was aglow with the lights and spirit of the season.

We on the Christmas in July Committee propose it’s time to start bringing back that spirit for our children and grandchildren, plus our friends and neighbors. Together we can show everyone how brightly the strength of our community can shine. With the help of the Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce, we are working to improve existing displays, expanding community wide to all areas helping to make Weirton a warm and welcoming place to be during the holidays.

The past is to be cherished, but it is up to us that remain to make the future shine brightly for all that will follow. To help achieve the goals set out we will be hosting a Christmas In July Fund Raising Dinner Tuesday, July 25th in the Grande Ballroom at The Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino.

Please join us for a fun-filled evening of fine food, songs, entertainment, auctions, and surprises.

We would like to invite all to join us in starting to build the memories for the future generations that will follow us. If you golf, please consider playing in the golf scramble at the magnificent Woodview. Dinner is included in the golf package. All may help by being an event sponsor, donating items for the raffles, volunteering to help with setup.

If you have a bad case of the Christmas Blues — we have the Cure.

To register for golf or purchase tickets call (304) 723-7288 or (304) 748-7271.

Don’t be a Grinch. Join the Elfs and get the Cure!
