It is the sound that reminds you that Christmas is in the air. The sounds of the kettle bells ringing and volunteers caroling as they gleefully stand for a cause that has been in existence since 1891. Usually, you would see this holiday spirit in December, however, the salvation army of Marinette/Menominee have changed things up this year and have brought Christmas for one day in July to Jacks in Menominee. Captain Josh Stansbury of the Salvation Army says, “I’m very excited because I’ve never been able to run kettles without a coat.”
Stansbury says, “we’re only going to be doing one location and that is going to be Jacks in Menominee.”
This one-day event is being held tomorrow at Jacks in Menominee from 10 am until 8pm. All proceeds raised by Jacks and from the kettles go directly to the Salvation Army of Marinette/Menominee.
