Plenty of bulbs â€“ corresponding to the Christmas wishes/needs of local children from low-income families â€“ are still hanging from Wish Trees at businesses throughout Inyo County, including the one at The Inyo Register in Bishop.
The deadline for choosing a bulb, fulfilling the wish and returning the unwrapped items to the Wish Tree businesses is at 5 p.m. tomorrow, Dec. 13. This is the 18th year that Inyo-Mono Advocates for Community Action has organized the effort, and estimates having about 600 children signed up for the program in 2013.
Local law enforcement is getting in the holiday spirit with the Third Annual Eastern Sierra Shop with a Cop event in Bishop.
The Bishop Police Department, Inyo County Sheriffâ€™s Office and California Highway Patrol are teaming up with their Mono County counterparts this Saturday, Dec. 14 to ensure that local youngsters from low-income families get the full Christmas experience.
With its annual Christmas parade back on track, the Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce is turning its attention to another local holiday tradition â€“ its Home and Business Decorating Contest.
Chamber Executive Director Tawni Thomson announced Tuesday that the parade, canceled last Saturday, Dec. 7 due to snow and slippery ice on Main Street and adjacent sidewalks, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 21. The procession wonâ€™t be returning to Main Street, however.
The rescheduled parade will take place on Spruce Street east of (behind) Kmart and Vons.
