Dash In The Snow To Combine Running, Goodies

Sheldon, Iowa — As fun runs go, it’s a frigid one, but a fun one.

One of the Christmas activities going on in Sheldon this year is a “Dash in the Snow”. It’s coming up a week from Saturday. It’s scheduled for Saturday, December 12th at 10 AM.

Sheldon Chamber Coordinator Allison Cooke tells us about it.

She says you are invited to dust off your Santa, elf, or holiday outfit and come join in the free fun run.

Cooke says they hope even more people will join them for the event this year. They tried to do a “Dash in the Snow” event in 2013 too, but it was really cold on the day of the run that year, so it had to be canceled. As always with winter activities, keep it tuned to KIWA or go to the Closures and Delays page at kiwaradio.com to see if the weather is going to allow them to happen as scheduled.

Also on that Saturday, December 12th, is the Festival of Trees. Michelle Honkomp at the chamber says they still need trees for the Festival of Trees. If your business, church, club, or organization is interested, give her a call at the Sheldon chamber at 324-2813.

Also, don’t forget, the Chamber’s Tour of Lights is THIS Thursday night, December 3rd. To participate, just have your outdoor lights and decorations up and lit by Thursday night. Call the Chamber for more information.
