Minier Christmas Parade Float Entry

December 01, 2018

CHRISTMAS IN MINIER

Well, the frost is on the pumpkins and there is a crisp nip in the air!  That can only mean that the holidays are fast approaching.  The Olympia Kiwanis Club is busy planning the 2018 Christmas Parade!  This year’s theme is CHRISTMAS IN THE LAND OF LINCOLN.  Grand Marshall Honors go to Neill Keneipp, Minier’s Village President and a fellow Kiwanian.  Neill’s long service to Minier and the Olympia School district is well known.  Kiwanis is pleased to honor Mr. Keneipp.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 1st and line Main Street in Minier to usher in the holiday season.  The Parade starts at 2 p.m.  Santa will arrive on the parade route, after the parade, he will greet children at the Fire Station.

If your club, church, business or organization wishes to enter a float, please go to HERE to access an application form.  Prizes will be given for floats. 

Again, this year, the Olympia Kiwanis Club will sponsor the town-wide Decorating Contest.  Dig out the lights & decorations and put your home or business in the holiday spirit.  Three prizes will be awarded for the best decorations.

The Olympia Kiwanis Club serves the children and schools of the Olympia District. We are proud to sponsor the Olympia Key Club, which is the student organization of Kiwanis International.  Our Olympia students provide service to the schools, their neighborhoods and our communities.  Each year the Kiwanis Club gives a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior who has given outstanding service.  Our thanks to Connie Schroeder who is the Key Club sponsor.

Why not consider joining this active organization in making our communities and our schools a better place to live, work, and learn.  Contact Carolyn Hansen, President, at 309-392-1700.

We Care Inc. Minier Transportation

August 24, 2018

We Care, Inc. is the only non-profit organization of its kind in our community and even the county. It was established in 1975 as a not for profit charitable corporation governed by an eleven member board of volunteer directors. The objective of We Care, Inc. is to provide services that help individuals maintain independence and to improve the quality of life for those in need. As our citizens enjoy longer lives than ever before, the needs in later years become more diverse. Families are not always available to fulfill these needs; care then falls to the community through support services. During the last 40 years, our organization has been a valued source of assistance to the members of our community by providing support services for the elderly, disabled, and those in need. It is with your prayers, service, and financial support that We Care, Inc. may continue caring.

 

Transportation is available to the General Public including senior citizens and those with disabilities. Our service area includes Morton, Rural Tazewell County and Woodford County. Transportation is available for medical appointments, employment, grocery shopping, and hospital or nursing home visits. Our buses are wheel-chair accessible.
