The Indian Lake Central School Student Council, the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Country Christmas Tour (CCT) Steering Committee kicked off the Operation Decoration community service program on Nov. 19 at the Indian Lake Meal Site. The program, named by the Student Council, offers all Indian Lake senior citizens assistance in hanging garlands, wreaths and lighting decorations on their homes for the upcoming holiday season. Decoration assistance will be offered through Dec. 16.
Operation Decoration, created in 2006, is the result of suggestions and feedback received from former Indian Lake Holiday Lighting and Decorating Contest participants. The purpose of this successful contest is to enhance community pride and holiday spirit among Indian Lake residents, businesses and the community. A special thanks to the 2013 Contest sponsors: Professional Income Tax Service, Stewart’s Shops, gra*FIX, Community Bank, Gadway Realty and Dave Ameden Floor Care/Kim’s Country Corner.
