Miles of Lights luminary display 2014

MILES OF LIGHTS EVENT - Sunday December 14th at Dusk

Candle-lit Sidewalks - Just like previous years with as many candles in paper sacks as we can possibly line up along the main thoroughfare and side streets. This year the display will take place on December 14th from 5pm to 8pm with a rain date of the 21st.

Toys for Tots - One of our neighbors, Bob Sutter, collects toys for the Toys for Tots program each year.  We would like to throw our entire neighborhood's weight behind his efforts.  The program has a great need for donations this year, andaccepts unwrapped gifts for children from 0-12 years old from now until Christmas day.  We are hoping many people will stop by to donate gifts on the night of the Luminaries as they walk/drive throughout the neighborhood light display.

Holiday Light Contest - In addition to the candles lighting our streets, we would love to create a contest for the best holiday light display.  Pictures of each neighbor's display would be posted to Facebook and whoever gets the most "likes" would win a prize!  Let's get some friendly competition going and see our neighborhood glow!

Carolers - A holiday tradition that just isn't seen enough these days is caroling.  We would love to organize a group of carolers who could potentially visit several of our neighborhood shut-ins or elderly on the night of the Luminaries.  Right now, we really don't have anything specific planned, so volunteers for this area are definitely encouraged.

 If you're willing to participate in any capacity just e-mail sherwoodoaksneighbors@gmail.com. Thanks!
