Dec 22 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The annual Children’s Christmas party will be held December 22 from 12-4 pm. There will be lots of games, painting and hot cocoa with cookies. Santa will be there!! All the children of our neighbors, friends and members are welcome. Come start off the holiday week at Post 143

A Night in Bethlehem @ Stateline Speedway
Dec 22 @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Join us as we go back in time and take a walk through the village of Bethlehem as if it were the very first Christmas over 2000 years ago! Authentic food, activities for children, live animals, visit the shops, talk with the inn keepers, then see a live production about the night that Jesus was born. From the moment you come in you will feel as if you are apart of Bethlehem.

Stop at the first building to talk with the guard. He will explain what to expect as you visit Bethlehem, where to exchange your money for mites as well as what you can buy with your mites, and then direct you to the census taker.

Afterward when you are leaving Bethlehem, stop at the largest Giving Tree in the Northwest and pick up an ornament. Each ornament has a child in need from our local area and something they’ve requested for Christmas. Bring back your tag with the gift item to AutoSource from 9am to 7pm Monday through Saturday and they will deliver the gifts to each family or organization for Christmas. Please return gifts and tags by the final event on December 22nd.

This is a FREE non profit event benefitting local charities, organizations, and families in need. All cash proceeds from the events will be donated to CASA Court Appointed Special Advocates of North Idaho. Other charities and organizations include Spokane Children’s Hospital, Newby Ginnings, and Family Promise.

Bundle up and bring the whole family out to share the true meaning of Christmas with our community. Stop by for the interactive walk through Bethlehem between 4pm and 6pm and the production shortly after is from 6pm to around 6:30pm. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at opportunities@anightinbethlehem.info

About Fun Home:

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison Bechdel dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

A limited amount of physical tickets can be purchased through volunteers or at the NIPA office in the Human Rights Education Institute (414 W Fort Grounds Dr, CDA). Contact us to make arrangements.

There are opportunities to volunteer, sponsor or be a partner at this event. Please reach out to us at nipridealliance@gmail.com or at (208) 352-3518 for more information.
