St. Germain gears up for its big holiday weekend Submitted: 11/20/2017
ST. GERMAIN - After your big Thanksgiving meal later this week, you might be looking for a way to get active.

St. Germain will be hosting its holiday light parade and Jingle Bell 3K Race this Saturday.

People will pull out their lawn chairs and wool blankets to watch floats take over downtown.

The St. Germain A-T-V club will also be collecting food along the parade route for the Vilas County Food Pantry.

"St. Germain has always had the tradition of the town tree lighting and caroling and stuff like that. We just amped it up and taken it one step further. It is really neat to be a part of and kick off the Christmas season," says special events coordinator Judy Jurries.

You can still register for the Jingle Bell 3K Race.

RHINELANDER - Drs. Fosters and Smith in Rhinelander sells everything from leashes to liver treats.

But this past weekend the store teamed up with a man who dedicates his life to selling blankets for animals.

"I've always had a passion for pets," said Jeff Hopwood, a 25- year-old from Mt. Horeb who has some serious skills when it comes to making blankets.

"I wanted something that could help raise money for transports," said Hopwood.

About four years ago, Hopwood started making tie-blankets to sell to help animal transports.

"[Transporting is when you] take the animals to another destination and they keep going until they get to their forever home," said Hopwood.
