With temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s recently, it really doesn’t seem like Christmas is fast approaching.
The season is upon us though and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet.
Nevertheless, Molly Bock, executive secretary of the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce, tells the I-O that the annual Christmas Stroll and Tree Auction will be on Dec. 4.
The ever popular Tree Auction will be at 7 p.m. and this year will be held at the Moose Lodge. Proceeds from the auction go towards the purchase of new Christmas street decorations.
“We still have a few wreaths and trees available so if anyone wants to decorate one or partner with another business, let me know as soon as possible,” Bock says.

The Conrad Orpheum Theatre/Weigand Auditorium hosted the finals of the Karaoke for Cancer competition on Nov. 7. Mitch Hauer introduced all the participants and the three judges. Hauer’s enthusiasm was just what the kids needed to shake off the jitters.
The three judges for the week’s contest were Steve Munk, Kit Finlayson and Todd Truscott. The judges were judging on three things: stage performance, vocal ability and star quality.
Eight contestants showed up for the chance to win a big screen TV, an IPOD or a digital camera. Four kids competed in two age categories and one from each category claimed a first place win.
