About Us

Our Team


Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. We take our convictions and turn them into action. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch  with Paul Forman for more information!

Our History


In 2019 a group of community members met to address the desire to create great Christmas memories. From that meeting we had a list of things we would like to see happen. I am glad to say we had a fundraising goal of $2500, and raised over $6000! However, our work has just begun. Please help us bring Holiday joy to all of our community in the future!

Our Mission


We want to fund our operation through a series of community  fundraisers and grants. We want our community to be a destination spot for Holiday shoppers, family and friends. We want to create magical images for guest young and old.
