Helping Set Up Crippsmas Place!

Helping Set Up Crippsmas Place!

Traditionally decorations and lights start going up the first weekend after Thanksgiving.

For this year, that gives us 5 weekend days to set up decorations:
▪ Sat & Sun Nov 30 & Dec 1, 2013    10am-12:30pm  2-5pm
▪ Sat & Sun Dec 7 & 8, 2013    10am-12:30pm  2-5pm
▪ Sat Dec 14, 2013   10am-2pm

We also need help taking down decorations afterward:
▪ Fri & Sat Jan 3 & 4, 2014    11am-3pm

We welcome volunteers to help with decoration set-up and take-down! Local high school students can earn community service hours to fulfill the graduation requirement.

*** Sorry, you CANNOT earn community service hours required by law enforcement for traffic tickets, etc. ***

Set-up consists of arranging and installing the unique plywood cut-out decorations on the lawns for those neighbors requesting help along Nicolet Avenue and the cul-de-sacs of Asquith Place, Cripps Place, Wellington Place, and Nicolet Court.

We will not have volunteers climb any ladders and working on rooftops; just ground-level work. Tasks involve carrying the wooden decorations, using a mallet to tap in the support stakes, and using a cordless screwdriver to attach the wooden decorations to the metal support stakes.

Please have interested students and their families contact me so I can schedule them in. Call Kate on her cell phone 510-821-5579 or leave a message on the Contact Us page.

In Community, Charity, and Childhood Joy,
