Don't Let Your Christmas Tree Become a Fire Hazard!

Tis' the Season and everyone is in the full holiday swing!  The lights are on the tree and and the final decorations are in the perfect place.  

If you have chosen a real Christmas Tree for your home, be aware while it is beautiful with an awesome aroma, it can also be a fire hazard if not cared for properly.  Don't forget, artificial trees and burning candles can also be a hazard. 

Here are some facts about home holiday fires:
  • One of every three home Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems.
  • Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious. 
  • On average, one of every 40 reported home structure Christmas tree fires results in a death compared to an average of one death per 142 total reported home structure fires.  
  • A heat source too close to the tree causes roughly one in every six of Christmas tree fires.  
  • More than half (56%) of home candle fires occur when something that can catch on fire is too close to the candle.  
  • December is the peak time of year for home candle fires. In December, 11% of home candle fires began with decorations compared to 4% the rest of the year.  Source: National Fire Protection Association
Please keep these facts in mind when displaying your Christmas decorations to help you have a safe and Merry Christmas

Christmas Parade on the Bagnell Dam Strip This Saturday!

Holiday festivities are in full swing!  One of our favorite family events is the Lake Ozark Christmas Parade.  This year marks the 29th year of this annual favorite that begins at 1pm on Saturday, December 14th.

Lead by the Marine Corp League Honor Guard, the parade will depart from Hwy 242 and proceed down Bagnell Dam Boulevard to the Dam.  Following the Grand Marshall, Santa and Mrs. Claus along with their adorable elves will arrive via Santa's awesome sleigh. 

Casper the semi-truck, lit with over 2,000 lights pulls the sleigh through the route as all the helpers through treats to the kiddos lining the streets.

Many other favorites are expected to return again this year including the Corvette Club, School of the Osage Marching Band, various civic groups, dance troupes and more! 

Santa will arrive at the White House following the parade to hear all of the wish lists and hand out stockings filled with goodies.  Like many events in the Lake Area this is free to attend so get out soak up the Christmas Spirit!

Celebrate Christmas While Helping Children in Need!

Everyone seems to be getting in the Christmas Spirit around the Lake!  But if you aren't quite there yet, we have the perfect suggestion that is sure to put you in the mood.  
One of the most exciting parties of the year is the Lake Area Christmas for Kids Benefit which is this Sunday, December 8th at the Country Club Hotel & Spa.  The party kicks off to the general public (21 & over) at 7pm and no reservations are needed.  Just bring $15 and an unwrapped gift per person to get in the door.  ($20 additional without toy)

There is a huge silent auction featuring items at all price points, as well as a live auction that follows.  You can enter to win huge wine and liquor baskets along with lottery trees filled with tickets!  All of this plus entertainment - there is so much going on all night long you just won't want to miss it!

The Ozark Coast Kiwanis Chapter partners with the Christmas for Kids committee to host this event that helps hundreds in the area.  All proceeds benefit underprivileged children in the Lake Area in addition to CADV, Wonderland Camp, Hope House, Big Bro./Big Sis., Lake Regional Pediatrics, YMCA, Share the Harvest Food Pantry & Kid’s Harbor.

We can't think of a better way to really get into the spirit of Christmas! Spending a great night celebrating with our friends and associates, all the while knowing we are really helping hundreds of kids in the area that need it! Hope to see you there!!
