Nov. 10, 2016 – West Bend, WI – If you’ve taken a stroll through Regner Park lately you’ll notice the park has taken on an early Christmas holiday flare. There’s a manger scene, some decorative archways and a hard-to-miss 70-foot Christmas tree complete with bright lights and shiny ornaments.
The event is put on annually by Rotary groups from across Washington County and neighboring Meonomonee Falls. The effort is designed to be a holiday hot spot for families and the goal is to raise money and collect donations of canned goods for area food pantries.
For the past month local school groups, scouts, students and various organizations have been volunteering on Saturday to help with setup.
A token of recognition from Enchantment in the Park lists the groups who volunteered below. Thank you for the effort to better your community.
