MNbump Christmas 2017

A wonderful family/community time of year, here on the ‘bump! A short one minute video with random pics/video taken from all of our Santa Day celebrations in Big Stone County – Beardsley, Clinton, Graceville & Ortonville.  You can’t help but smile when you see the children having such a good time!  A huge “Thank you” to the following groups that hosted the Santa Day Celebrations: Beardsley Town & Country Gals Clinton Commercial Club & Clinton Women’s Civic Club Graceville Women’s Organization(GWO) Ortonville Downtown Revitalization Committee The lighted parade held in Ortonville was a fun evening for the kids (and adults!).  The Santa Day celebration in Ortonville was hosted by the Ortonville Downtown Revitalization Committee – with special kudos to Missy McMahon for organizing the parade portion of the day’s event! It was fun to see the parade represented many from the area… A “Merry Christmas from Clinton” float, a couple entries from Odessa and a couple from Big Stone City along with the Ortonville floats.  Lots of family visit time while waiting for the parade …
