Volunteers Needed for Christmas in Hopelands

The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department is hard at work transforming Hopelands Gardens into a winter wonderland of lighted displays and pathways for the 20th Annual Christmas in Hopelands and with over 100,000 lights to install, they need your help!

On Monday, December 3rd, there will be a community volunteer day at Hopelands Gardens from 9 am - 11 am.  Volunteers will help install light bulbs along all the pathways in the Gardens while the PRT crews continue the installation of lighted displays throughout the Gardens.  Volunteers are asked to meet in the Courtyard of the Hall of Fame at 9 am.  The first 50 volunteers will receive a Christmas in Hopelands souvenir.  This event provides a wonderful opportunity for home schools, church groups, civic groups and community spirited individuals to help prepare Hopelands Gardens for this City of Aiken's annual holiday tradition.

If you have any further questions about this event or would like to volunteer, please contact the City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department at 803-642-7631.
