Merry Middlefield  ~ a Grinch Steals Christmas

On Saturday, Dec. 9 the Grinch and his dog Max will arrive in Middlefield to steal the gifts that have been donated by you, our community, at host locations (listed below) for the first annual Merry Middlefield event sponsored by the Middlefield Chamber of Commerce and participating Chamber members.

Look for Grinch posters and signs when you visit your local merchants in Middlefield.  They will have a decorated box or shopping cart for collecting unwrapped toys that will be donated to Santa Claus at Santa’s Hide-A-Way Hollow, just east of Middlefield who is dedicated to working with seriously and terminally ill children and their families.  Write Santa a letter or listen to a message from Santa at where they celebrate Christmas every day.

Catch the thief in action between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Dec. 9; Grinch and Max will appear at various businesses to steal gifts; and photographer Shelby Smith will be following him throughout the day.

Kids will be able to meet the Grinch in person at the Middlefield Library from noon until 1:30 p.m. where he will tell his story and give signed books to the young visitors, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.

Then at 6 p.m. our Merry Middlefield Grinch will re-appear inside Great Lakes Outdoor Supply at 14855 N. State Street in Middlefield.  Everyone is invited to meet Grinch, hear his story and receive a free photo with Grinch and Max. Dress warm and bring chairs to stay for fireworks after dark to celebrate the end of this special event.  Fireworks are courtesy of Great Lakes Outdoor Supply and the Village of Middlefield.
