Salvation Army Red Kettle kick-off
We are so excited to partner with The Salvation Army this holiday season. They will be providing hot chocolate and other goodies free to the public. The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle project began in 1891 as a fundraising effort to feed Christmas dinner to community members of San Fransisco who would otherwise go without. Now, the Red Kettle projects helps feed over 4.5 million people during the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
The Salvation Army of Muskegon is located at 1221 Shonat St.
The new and improved tree
Thanks to the amazing organizations that are so dedicated to Muskegon, we have a phenomenal tree for this holiday season. The monster will be lit at 6 and shine brightly throughout Holidays in the City.
A huge thank you to the Business Improvement District, the City of Muskegon, and the Womens Division of the Chamber of Commerce for pitching in to bring us the gorgeous tree that will be unveiled on Nov. 24th
Entertainment will be provided before the tree lighting as well as after by the talented students of Muskegon Catholic Central schools.
The theatre department is excited to join us with all sorts of talent to perform on the Hackley stage. We will also invite kids from the community to come to the stage and join in a children’s choir of classic carols.
