Beavercreek merchants will be holding their annual Holiday Kick-Off Party November 11th at Rotary Park from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The event is being touted as a free evening of fun for the entire family including a bonfire, refreshments, music, crafts for the kids and an appearance by Santa.

The party is the beginning of three days of open houses, special activities, sales and prizes at various area merchants, Thursday November 12 through Saturday November 14. Businesses participating include Bruning’s Clock Shop, Home Accents Store & Wine Cellar, Cake Craft, Central Carpet and Interiors, MVP Video Creations, Piano Preparatory School, Pinnacle Home Care, Puzzles Plus, Travelplex and The UPS Store.

In conjunction with the open houses, merchants are hosting a “Basic Necessities” drive to benefit the United Way of Greene County. Each participating business is a drop off point and is collecting donated “shelter” items such as blankets, sheets, coats, hats, mittens and gloves. Additional drop-off points include Barney’s hardware and The Color Wheel.

The party and subsequent events are sponsored by the Retail Merchants of the Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce.
