The North Branch Midsummer Ambassadors helped bring in the spirit of Christmas Nov. 23 as they participated in the Cambridge Snowflake parade, dressed as “stocking stuffers.” They went to Cambridge nursing homes and caroled with other visiting royalty, and then they were off to the parade in below zero temps! Following the parade, they were invited to a chili feed. It was a fun evening even though the weather wasn’t the best. The Ambassadors also volunteered with the Salvation Army as bell ringers, and on Dec. 6 they were again invited to Cambridge for their annual “Jingle Bell Ball,” which played host to 48 little Prince and Princesses as well as visiting royalty. The next event the Ambassadors will be attending will be the Winter Carnival weekend at the end of January, where they will spend three nights and four days in St. Paul doing everything from attending coronations, participating in parades and ice skating and a talent show. It’s been a fun year for the Ambassadors. They have represented North Branch so well and this community should be proud of them. As the year winds down, the Ambassador programs wants to remind everyone that it is looking for a coordinator or group that would be interested in coordinating the program in 2014. Those interested in more information can call Julie Solle at 651-270-3950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Merry Christmas and happy 2014!
