Hanging of the Greens 2012

  • December 1, 2012 · 7:30 AM

If you have ever walked the streets of Annapolis during the holidays, admiring the decorations, you can thank (for the most part) the Jaycess for making it happen. but instead of thanking us, come join us. It is a long standing tradition that the Jaycees come together with the support of local businesses to prepare the city for the holiday season by decorating storefronts and businesses throughout the city. This is a very festive, day long event culminating in a holiday party sponsored by the Jaycees to thank all of the volunteers (location to be announced to volunteers the day of the event.) Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided to volunteers. Typically, we split into teams and decorate about 85 storefronts (10+ per team). The decorating starts around 7:30 AM and goes until you are done (3 or so). We then shower up and gather at a predetermined location for the Holiday Party. If you are actively involved, have never been involved or have just been away from the Jaycees for awhile, this is a great time to join us. Everyone's welcome, hope to see you there.

    Does anyone have a small, white, plastic step stool from HoG? I brought it, but I didn't leave with it. Also, I ended up leaving with a green gel travel mug. To whom does that belong?

    Thank you everyone for a successful day of decorating!! Downtown looks great and I have been getting many positive comments. If any of you are still in the decorating mood I will need help with 2 stores. I need to add wreaths and a small section of roping. I tried one store today and I was to short to put up the wreath with my ladder. I would like to go tomorrow or Wed after work.
    Let me know if you can assist.

    Correction the Thomas Point room is on the RIGHT directly across from the hotels main entrance in a separate building. We will have a sign outside for the Hanging of the Greens.

      Thanks! Loews the hotel, right in downtown Annapolis? (Not the hardware store, which was how I spelled it)
