City Lights Welcomes new members!

Our founders, Denny Bode, Jim Anderson and Charlie Thompson, started the legwork to get us connected with the NCC and started asking people they knew at work who collected Dept. 56 pieces to join the new club.  It spread by word of mouth and at one time, we had a high of 56 member households. Our history took us through the developing years of our villages, where we were learning to set up a village, had guest speakers and demonstrations and work sessions where we made pieces for our villages. The first 10–15 years of the club were devoted to these building years. In the past few years our village displays have come to maturity where many of us are no longer adding a lot of new pieces each year. Our club still functions as a source of motivation to get the villages set up and sharing time-saving ideas. As club members we have also become good friends and enjoy the socializing that has become a part of the club. In part, our mission statement states that, “We also strive to provide fellowship and camaraderie within the group, other clubs, community and state.” We are enjoying this part of the club now as much as we enjoyed the early years when we were building up village displays.

We welcome new members. Feel free to print this Informational Post Card and contact us for more details.
