All of bills for the Winter Wonderland event are in, and the final profit for the school came to $1,216.70. The PTO uses the money from all of the fundraisers to defray the cost of student field trips, skating, assembly programs, parties and some computer programs. This is made possible by all the volunteers and parents that help with the various fundraisers.

Hitz Home Videos

The Hitz Home has put a series of exercise videos on Facebook. The residents have a wonderful time exercising and get the full benefits of the program. Check Facebook and see them “rockin’ to the tunes.”

Help The Historical Committee

The local Historical Committee would like to ask the citizens of Alhambra and surrounding communities to please watch for items that could possibly have some historical significance to future generations.

Many times a letter, postcard, receipt orsale bill from a past business may help someone to remember the past. When cleaning out drawers, basement, attics and garages, please remember the historical society.

Contact Kenny Gehrig at 488- 2425 if you would like to donate anything. Nothing is too insignificant.

Christmas Tree Disposal

Residents may take their Christmas trees to the village shed at 421 Elm St. for disposal by the village.
