Holiday events
By Sen. Joe Hune

The holiday season is upon us here in Southeast Michigan. Fortunately, we are blessed to live within communities that enjoy celebrating the occasion. I’d like to bring your attention to several community events taking place in the district in the coming weeks.

On Tuesday you have the opportunity to surprise your children in the third grade or younger by having Santa call from the North Pole. The calls will be made Tuesday, Dec. 18 or Thursday, Dec. 20 between 6 and 8 p.m. Call 517-546-0693 ext. 0 for more details.

In Brighton, the High School bands will perform their annual Holiday Concert on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. The concert will feature all four high school bands, including the Concert Band, Symphony Band, Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble. The performance will be held at the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts, and there is no admission charge.

On Saturday, the Hamburg firefighters will be helping the Salvation Army and their annual Red Kettle Campaign from noon to 4 p.m. at the Hamburg Kroger located on Chilson Road in Pinckney.

I hope everyone has a chance to spend some much-needed time with their loved ones this holiday season and are able to partake in some of the numerous events we have available to us this great time of year.
