Christmas for Kids makes holidays brighter

Fundraisers at two Crosslake restaurants will again this year help make the holidays brighter for families in need in the community. Both Riverside Inn and Maucieri’s hold events that not only support a cause but are highly anticipated by those who attend.

At Maucieri’s on Dec. 3, the restaurant grew steadily more and more crowded, working toward the standard standing room only of the annual live auction. Event coordinators said that tables began to fill at 2 p.m. for the event, which technically didn’t start until 4 p.m. The main event, the live auction, began at 6 p.m. A silent auction also took place, and vendors sold holiday gifts.

Corrie Craig, a Christmas for Kids coordinator and volunteer, said that every year local businesses become more and more generous to the cause.

People on small boats, such as canoes, kayaks, and fishing boats, should take extra precautions to prevent being suddenly thrown overboard, swamped or stranded in rough, cold waters.

“Cold water robs body heat 25 times faster than air of the same temperature,” said Lt. Col. Greg Salo of the DNR’s Enforcement Division. “Should you find yourself in the water, righting your canoe or small boat and climbing back aboard is extremely difficult in muscle-cramping cold water. It’s best to not boat alone and to always wear a life jacket.”
