Downtown Redmond businesses will be abuzz with the holiday spirit, offering refreshments, music, special events and a downtown Charm Stroll on Saturday, Dec. 9th, 12 noon to 4 p.m. Among the many holiday adventures, kids young and old can visit and get their pictures taken with Santa at the Green Plow Coffee Roaster located at 436 SW 6th St. The Charm Stroll organized by the Redmond Chamber with the downtown merchants is once again working with the Girl Scouts, helping them make over 100 Blessing Bags for our homeless people in Redmond. To participate in the Charm Stroll, we are asking individuals to bring donations such as socks, shampoos, gloves, toiletries or cash donations to Herringbone Books (422 SW 6th St). These donations will help complete the Blessing Bags that the Girl Scout Troops 50049, 50064 and 10772 will be making and delivering to the Redmond Police Station, St. Vincent DePaul, NeighborImpact, and Redmond VFW. Each participant will then receive a Charm Stroll passport that lists all participating merchants. After collecting charms, folks can bring them to David Haffey Fine Jewelry on Sixth Street to have the charms placed on bracelets for $10.00. For more information, contact the Redmond Chamber at 541-923-5191.
