OSKALOOSA — There is still time to place monetary votes for the children entered in the Main Street Young Ambassador contest.

Thirty-four local children ages 3 through kindergarten-age are seeking support to become this year’s Young Ambassadors.

Local merchants who are sponsoring the children have banks with the name and picture of the child on the bank. Money placed in the canister of your choice is considered votes. Any amount of money may be deposited.

A portion of the proceeds will go this year to Sieda Headstart Preschool, with the balance used to defray costs of the Lighted Christmas Parade.

The winners will be announced Monday, Dec. 2 at 6 p.m. in a gala event at Center Court, Penn Central Mall. Event includes introductions of the kids, entertainment, and of course Santa. You won’t want to miss it. Show your support by voting for these youngsters now.

The Main Street Lighted Christmas Parade is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. In previous years, the parade was held on the Thursday following Thanksgiving.

For more information, call the Main Street office of the Oskaloosa Area Chamber & Development Group at 641-672-2591 or visit www.oacdg.org.
