0 Talk about it

We want to personally extend many thanks for the tremendous show of support of the Hospice Cottage 11th annual Christmas House Walk.

The committee wishes to thank the homeowners — Dan and Mary Huls, Craig and Pam Bergh, Jeff and Ellen Merrigan, and Ron and Kathy Tangen — for hosting this event. Without their help, this event would not have been possible.

We also thank Hy-Vee Floral, McCarthy’s Floral, Deb Grimmius Decor & More and Decadent Decor, who offered their expertise to bring the holiday colors and spirit to their homes. Thanks, too, to the motels — AmericInn, Holiday Inn Express and Comfort Inn and Suites — for furnishing rooms to the host families. Meals were provided by Dairy Queen, Perkins, BenLee’s, Ground Round, McDonald’s, Pizza Ranch, Hickory Lodge, Arby’s, Burger King and Subway. Worthington Hy-Vee provided the shoe bags.

The many hours of work by the families and everyone involved on behalf of this project are appreciated more than we can say. Thanks again to everyone.
