Park Rangers plan work detail

Looking for a way to get some exercise without going to the gym? Come out to the Locust Street Park in Columbia on Saturday, Dec. 10, and help the Columbia Park Rangers remove leaves.
The Park Rangers have been around since 2001 and are comprised of community volunteers that want to give a "little extra shine" to the local parks. In most cases there is only enough money in the Park's budget to take of mowing and the extra things like leaf removal, trimming, pulling weeds, painting, repairs and mulching fall by the wayside.
To volunteer or for more information, call Jeff Groff at 684-0861 or email him at jgroff@fandm.edu.

Sana to visit clock museum

Santa will visit the National Watch and Clock Museum, 514 Poplar St., Saturday, Dec. 10. After he arrives, children may visit with him from 10 a.m. to noon and share with him their holiday wishes. Parents are welcomed to take pictures and enjoy yuletide music and punch and cookies around the Christmas tree.
The museum's Family Timepiece Workshop will also be held during Santa's visit. Registered participants will create a holiday theme clock using a compact disc as the dial. Cost is $10 for each person making a clock, and admission to the museum is included with the workshop fee.
Anyone bringing an unwrapped gift for Toys for Tots may participate in the workshop for just $5. Pre-registration is required by contacting the Education Department at 684-8261, ext. 237.
