Order Lollipops for the Square by Nov. 6

Just wanted to remind everyone that we do have lollipops on sale. For those of you who may be new, the lollipops are displayed around the square during December. The lollipops can have your business logo, sayings, & names on them. The cost is $25, and funds raised from the lollipops go to the Leonard Toy Drive. The Leonard Toy Drive helps provide Christmas to around 150 to 175 kids in our community each year.

The deadline to order the lollipops this year is November 6th and the money must be turned into Brandi at Buchanan Insurance by no later than Tuesday, November 13th.

If you are interested in purchasing a lollipop or displaying yours from last year, let Brandi at Buchanan Insurance know and we will get your name on the list. Brandi‚Äôs email is [email protected]
