Ripley River Village Christmas coming Dec. 9, 10 & 11

As plans continue to come together for this years’s Ripley River Village Christmas, Fred Dengler, coordinator of this years event, just released a few more highlights of the 2016 Ripley River Village Christmas.
According to Dengler, this year’s raffle continues to build and could be the biggest raffle yet for the RRV Christmas event set for Dec. 9, 10 and 11.
“Saturday, Dec. 10 has grown into a huge day for our Ripley River Village Christmas,” said Dengler, “The Olde Piano Factory Mall is a must see with its beautiful holiday decorations and large inventory of unique and antique gift items. They will have treats for all and graciously donated a $10 gift certificate to the raffle. Drawing buckets for the raffle are located around town at local merchants, so get you tickets as soon as you can.”
Dengler said that proceeds from the raffle go to help fund the annual Christmas event. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
According to Dengler the Ripley Assembly of God will be having a FREE Christmas Store for all needy families. They are currently accepting donations of new and gently used toys, clothing and other gift items. (To contribute, contact Barry Francis at or call (513) 427-0633).
The Assembly of God especially needs items for men and women including household goods, tools or anything for men.
“This wonderful free Christmas Store will be open on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and all needy families are welcome to come and shop,” Dengler added.
