Markwell Participates in “Candy Canes on Main”

It’s the perfect time of year for candy canes and hot cocoa, and this past Saturday, December 5, Markwell Funeral Home provided free hot chocolate and cookies from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Casey Township Library for the “Candy Canes on Main” event in downtown Casey.

The event kicked off the holiday season with a variety of activities for folks of all ages, supporting local businesses in the process. Patrons could make a purchase at any participating downtown store and be eligible to win a basket valued at more than $250. Each store would issue one ticket per customer, and the more stores people would purchase from, the more entries they’d have for the gift basket (although they were limited to one ticket per store). The participating stores included Dollars N Sense, Crazy Beautiful, Pretty Petals & More, The Yarn Studio, Our Father’s House, Back on the Rack, Whitling Whimsy, Kirchner’s Building Center, and Stifal Hardware. Markwell provided each participating store with 2 dozen Christmas cookies to distribute to their customers with a message “Thank you for shopping locally courtesy of Markwell Funeral Home.”

Santa Claus and his reindeer also made an appearance at the event and were available for professional pictures with friends and families that could be purchased. Elves were also on hand to collect letters to Santa and make sure holiday wish lists would make it to the North Pole in time for Christmas.

There was also an arts and crafts show held in the Richards Building where vendors sold items for purchase. Plus, local firemen also hosted a pancake breakfast.

Markwell Funeral Home was happy to be a part of this special holiday event that supported the local Casey community and hopes everyone enjoyed the festivities.
