Thank you to all of the sponsors of 2012
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help with the Funkstown Olde Tyme Christmas event. The temperature outside was chilly and the rain died out to a cool breeze, but it was evident that there was no way to slow down the steady stream of people that were flowing through the social hall and all of the stores. At best guess we had over 3200 people come through our doors. We had every wagon ride full and the face painters did over 80 people. Everyone got their fill of good food, drinks, and music as well as sharing the Christmas spirit with friends, family and town folk. It was truly a sight to see the houses all decorated with their luminaries in place and the living nativity with live sheep at the park. The added treat of smore, hot chocolate and popcorn from the Scouts was just the special touch that Santa ordered.
Your donations were a very special part of what made the evening grand. The names of all our sponsors were displayed in the social hall for all of the guests to see just who shares the Christmas spirit.Funkstown Olde Tyme Christmas also has a website that you can visit at www.funkstown.com. It has events, contest winners, Town history, Locater map, and even the sponsors of this event. When you go there you will see more than just Olde Tyme Christmas, you will see links to local business, organizations and a listing of upcoming events. Any businesses that are interested in web advertising, please contact our web master at the bottom of the web page.
Again, let us thank you for your support in this adventure. This was truly best Christmas that Funkstown has ever seen. We hope you have a very prosperous new year and we hope to work with you on this next year, because without you, this would not have been a Very Special Funkstown Olde Tyme Christmas!
Yours in spirit,The Christmas committee
Rich & Rose Gaver -Chairman
