It is with great sadness to report that a big part of the Come Home to Alma for the Holidays passed away. Larry Mott has been our Santa for 20 years. He was one of Alma's best community supporters/volunteer, always helping out whenever he could. We will miss your smile and positivity.

As you may be aware the US27 Motor Tour is a little different this year. The tour is still scheduled for Thursday, August 20, 2020 to come through our area, but due the restrictions on gathers, the tour will be “self-guided” or some may call it a “virtual” tour. Superior Street will not be closed to park the vehicles. Each participate will be given a map of the route by the organizer. We are providing a map of our downtown district, and the route to and from Masonic Pathways. With the restrictions on adult care facilities we are asking the tour participants to make a lap or two around the Masonic, so the residents get a chance to see some of the vehicles.

Superior Street will not be closed to park tour vehicles in downtown from 1 – 3 pm as is the tradition. The participates will be on their own as they may their way to Clare, they will be parking on street or in the parking lots throughout the day on August 20th. If you have any questions about the tour please give me a call. You can also like “Michigan Old US27 Motor Tour” of more information.

The US127 Motor Tour is a little different this year. The tour is still scheduled for Thursday, August 20, 2020 to come through our area, but due the restrictions on gatherings, the tour will be “self-guided”. Each participate will be given a map of the route, and each community will provide a map of their community businesses. So instead of all 200 plus vehicles being parked on Superior Street in downtown from 1 – 3 pm, the participates will be here at random times and parking on street or the parking lots throughout the day on August 20th, as they make their way to Clare. If you have any questions about the tour please give Aeric Ripley a call at City Hall. If there is something extra you would like add for your business that day, for example, 10% off today only for tour participates, please email him those details.

This year the Come Home to Alma for the Holudays wanted to do something special for Santa to Thank him for all his years of visiting our event during his busy season. We asked Hillcrest, Luce, Pine and St. Mary's School and 2 local daycares children to write him Thank You letters to Santa. The picture is just a small sample of the wonderful cards and letters we recieved. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED US OUT. This week we learned that the teachers loved the idea. They used it as an opportunity for a unique writing assignment, as a chance to give back and give to others, and 1 teacher even made copies of his students letters and emailed the students parents his students Christmas list so they had a wish list to shop from. We also have heard that Santa loved all of the cards and letters. SO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS SPECIAL GIFT HAPPEN FOR A VERY SPECIAL MAN. Merry Christmas from the Come Home to Alma for the Holidays Committee
