Noblesville Deputy Mayor
The holiday season has officially kicked off in Noblesville with the many traditions that families have come to enjoy year after year – such as the arrival of Santa during the annual parade, the lighting of the Christmas tree and the display of ice sculptures lining the square. Yes, we have much to be grateful for given the many blessings we enjoy as a community thanks to the individuals and organizations that make all these activities possible.
As the holiday fun continues, this Friday night is your family’s chance to start a new tradition – by giving back to those who need it most with the Noblesville Youth Assistance second annual “Stuff-Your-Stocking” event.
By purchasing a ticket for $15, your child will get a special stocking he or she can bring to participating businesses around the square and “stuff it” with fun treats, toys and ornaments provided by downtown merchants. Families also are encouraged to buy an extra stocking to “stuff it” and donate it for a child in need.
It all happens during Noblesville Main Street’s “First Friday” event from 5 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 1. Downtown merchants will welcome shoppers with special sales, Santa will greet children at his house on the square for hot chocolate and carolers’ voices will fill the air outside with the joyous sounds of the season.
And your family will have begun a new tradition of giving – one that helps local families with at-risk kids who depend on Noblesville Youth Assistance every year for its critical programs and services.
Tickets must be purchased in advance here: eventbrite.com/e/2017-noblesville-stuff-your-stocking-tickets-39399219125. After registering, the pre-paid stockings and maps of participating businesses can be picked up at the law offices of Church Church Hittle + Antrim, located at 2 N. Ninth St. in Noblesville.
Anyone who wants to donate a stocking for a Noblesville Youth Assistance family can simply bring the stocking back to CCH+A.

See you on the square!
