This year is a very special Jingle Book Bash, as this year's Jingle Book Bash will benefit OccuPaws Guide Dog Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.
Occupaws is based out of Madison, WI, and is an International Guide Dog Federation accredited school. Their mission is to place fully trained guide dogs with visually impaired residents of Wisconsin (and surrounding cities within 150 miles of Wisconsin’s borders) at no charge, through an in-home training program.
The Winneconne High School Student Council members have planned interactive games for kids, that will take place in the high school gymnasium throughout the duration of Jingle Book Bash.
At 1:00 pm, we have the privilege of seeing future Occupaws Guide Dog puppies race to Santa Claus, in a one-of-a-kind competition called the Reindeer Puppy Dash! The fastest puppy will become an honorary guide reindeer to Santa Claus on Christmas Eve!
In addition, we will have the fantastic Whimbubble face-painting artists from Oshkosh at our holiday festival, to provide face-painting & glitter tattoos.
Each year, the planning committee, comprised of Winneconne High School Student Council advisor Trisha Buelow and Student Council members, as well as Winneconne Public Library staff, aspire to make this annual event more meaningful and more holiday spirit-filled than the year before (:
