TEMPLETON — The Templeton Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and volunteers are arranging a community event on Saturday, Dec. 18, from 4 to 7 p.m., to bring locals and tourists together on picturesque Main Street to celebrate the holidays.
The event is free and open to the public, and will begin at the American Legion Hall on the south end of Main Street at 8th Street, where children can meet Santa, parents can shop at the craft fair (over 30 local vendors have already signed up, making it ideal for last-minute gifts), and families can enjoy the Templeton 4-H petting zoo.
At Main and 6th, the Templeton Recreation Department will be providing a variety of children’s activities, and farther down the street, watch the winter production of the Templeton Players.

Nine fantastic local companies have chosen nine local residents.
non-profits “adopted” a Christmas tree, which will be lavishly adorned by the adopting company and auctioned off to benefit the non-profit. The gorgeous real Christmas trees were generously donated by Home Depot and Armet’s Landscaping. One week before to the event, the auction will go live online and end that night. Starting Dec. 11, potential bidders may examine the trees, register at templetonchamber.com or on their Facebook page, and then put bids. The auction will finish that evening to allow for last-minute bidding during the event, and all trees will be on display along Main Street at local shops. Winning bidders will get the complete tree, including all decorations and presents, as well as 100% of the auction earnings to the non-profit organization.
