You can help your local regional park district and have fun too. Start with a leisurely and informative hike through a beautiful wooded area—led by a park ranger or naturalist. Then spend two hours assisting park staff in trail maintenance. This includes cutting back low branches, removing small trees that block trails, cordoning off areas so vegetation can get re-established, planting young trees, and more. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a redwood grove, and finish the afternoon with “Water Games” (if hot), or a fun “team Olympics.”Each team is given an artificial, pre-lit Christmas tree. There is a theme given to all teams. For example: “Christmas Songs.” Each team then selects a Christmas song or carol and uses the lyrics of the song to guide them in the decorating of their team’s tree. Each team has play money with which to purchase ornaments and craft materials to decorate their tree. At the end of the afternoon, all the trees are moved to the company lobby to be put on display. At the base of each tree is a “lottery box.” All company employees are encouraged to purchase tickets. They place their tickets in the boxes of the trees or tree they would like to own. A week before Christmas, there is a drawing for each tree, and the winners are notified. You could even tie this in with a holiday party. The proceeds from the lottery ticket sales are given to charity.
