October 1
Operation Hometown Santa (10:00am - 3:00pm, 635 Masonic Lodge, 121 E. Main St., ROCHESTER)
This vendor and craft show event is free. Donations are welcome. All money collected from this event will go towards shipping and gifts that are being purchased for military servicemen and woman who are serving our country and are far from home.

Last year a group of friends, family, and Military Moms got together to send presents to an Air Force Squadron in England. Our effort was such a huge success that we learned of other service members who do not receive gifts, and would welcome presents from our hometown also. Purchasing the gifts and paying for shipping is more than our little group of Military Supporters can provide. So we are asking for your help, and trying to have fun also!!! This October we will be hosting our first fundraiser, and all the proceeds will be used to send our men and women serving overseas Christmas gifts!

Please look us up on facebook at Operation Hometown Santa: https://www.facebook.com/groups/705360772948036/
