Christmas Festival of Lights Fund Drive

The Christmas Festival of Lights Fund Drive stands at $1,625 after our first nine contributions arrived. Thanks go out to: Slanesville Ruritan, Fred and Sandra Spaid; Scott and Becky Heavener; Amy, Travis, Deacon, and Elliott Delaplain; FNB Bank; Tim Nichols, DDS; Peter Wood; Joyce and Russell Saville; and Wanda McCulley for contributing to the Fund Drive last week. We now have collected enough donations to purchase one large display to add to the ring around the inside of the park.

The Hampshire County Commission and the Parks and Recreation Board have made significant contributions, both monetary and maintenance, in support of the Festival, and both are committed to supporting it in the future. But we also want to give the individual citizens and the business community of Hampshire County the opportunity to show their support for the project so we can truly make the Festival something that we can all be proud of.

In that vein, we are kicking off our eighth annual Christmas Festival of Lights Fund Drive. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase additional displays so we can light up the area in the middle of the park, to add an additional 4-foot section to our giant Christmas tree, and to make necessary repairs to the existing displays. Contributors will be listed in the following categories:

Santa Club- This category will include all individuals and businesses that contribute $1,000 or more. Their names will be listed on professionally prepared placards on a lighted board that will be displayed on the back of the amphitheater where everyone visiting the Festival will see it. We will also put an individual picture of each Santa Club member in the Hampshire Review.

Santa’s Helpers- This category will include those who contribute $500. Their names will be listed on professionally prepared placards on another lighted board on the back of the amphitheater.

Elves- These will include those who contribute $250. They will be listed on smaller placards farther down the second lighted board.

Reindeer- This category will include all those who contribute up to $100. They will be listed on smaller placards farther down the second lighted board.

Donations of any size are appreciated. If you just want to send in $5 or $10, every contribution helps make the Festival that much better in 2020. And we’ll list every contributor, no matter how big or how small the contribution, on our website, hampshirecountyparks.com.

We are conducting our Fund Drive during January and February so we can take advantage of the after-Christmas sales that most dealers offer. Don’t miss out on your chance to help make the Christmas Festival of Lights an event that our entire county can cherish for years to come.  

Contributions may be mailed to HCP&R, P.O. Box 213, Romney, WV 26757, or delivered to the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street any weekday between 9:00 and 1:00. If you’d like us to pick up your contribution, give us a call at (304) 822-7300, or email us at hampshirecoparks@hotmail.com, and we’ll
