And on Sunday the 15th, Santa will be touring the town, visiting every street in every neighborhood with the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots campaign. Each year, Georgetown residents donate over three thousand gifts to the toy collection. The Georgetown Fire Department sponsors this parade of apparatus and vehicles to gather the toys right from the source: Georgetown families.

Wooden Toy and Gift helps the fire department by collecting donations in our shop and placing them in the Marine's hands as they come by our shop. We make our own donations to them on that day as well.

The beautiful wooden rocking motor cycles have all been sold, and many of the large pieces of 18" doll furniture have also found their way into homes that treasure their dolls. Rick is making more small items now; he has a collection of scroll sawn ornaments, plaques and figures for sale in the shop.

Enjoy this "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and join in the celebration this coming weekend. Santa will be glad to see you street-side offering your donated new, unwrapped toys to the Marines that ride with him each year in Georgetown. And we'll look forward to seeing you on Holiday Shop Hop Saturday!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
