The Anchor of Hull is gearing up for a busy holiday season filled with special and safe events for the community.
On Saturday, Dec. 12, from 2-4 p.m., the Anchor invites members of the public to join in Christmas caroling around town. Those who would like to do so should meet at the Anchor, on 7 Hadassah Way, at 1:45 p.m. (and should be wearing masks). Participants will be divided into groups before heading out into the community to spread some cheer.
Also, on Dec. 12, from 4-5 p.m., the Anchor’s building will be lit with a holiday display. Santa Claus and Queen Elsa will be visiting, and there will be holiday treats and music at the free event. (Due to social distancing guidelines, this is a drive-by/walk-by event only.)
And the holiday fun continues with the Anchor’s first Holiday Cookie Drop. Anchor staff and volunteers will be making cookie boxes for the holiday season. A box can be sponsored and given to someone in town via free contactless delivery (in Hull only) from the Anchor or by pickup on Tuesday, Dec. 22. The box will contain an assortment of holiday cookies. Orders must be placed by Friday, Dec. 18. The suggested donation is $10 per box.
Those who have someone in mind they would like to gift a box to, but are unable to pay, can contact the Anchor staff and a box will be provided free of charge. The Anchor is ServSafe-certified and will be following all COVID-19 guidelines and procedures.
