An ELF-ing Christmas comes to Staples & Motley on December 1st

Start your day at the community center in Staples with some delicious pancakes and sausage made by our very own Staples JCI serving 8 - 11 am. Be sure to stop by the elf-shopping to get some great homemade gifts running from 9 am to Noon at the Community Center. Kids only are able to go in to shop.

After you fill up with pancakes, head over to Storytime at the Library and enjoy a holiday story and activity. Storytime starts at Noon.

Afterwards be sure to stop by Stomping Grounds downtown Staples at the hot chocolate bar, serving from noon to 2 pm, before heading to the sleight rides. You are able to get on at the Library and the Community Center. Sleight rides will run from 10 am to 2 pm. Remember to bring extra warm clothes and warm blanket for the ride.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings take a walk through the luminary lights, which will be lighting up the Veteran's Park.

Last but very not least, take a drive through North Pole wonderland. Drive through this amazing display of lights put up by Staples Park and Rec. North Pole will open at 6 pm and close at 9 pm.

Be sure to thank all of the sponsors that made this possible. Timberlake Hotel, Staples Economic Development Authority, Staples Historical Society, ACE Hardware, Mid-Central Federal Savings Bank, Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union, Liquor Depot, Staples Motley Area Chamber of Commerce, LEAP, Lakewood Health System, Arvig, Stomping Grounds, Staples Motley Community Foundation.
