The Covid 19 version the Lewisville Holiday Stroll much different for club members this year
Instead of the traditional Breakfast with Santa
at the Lewisville Holiday Stroll this year
Club members opted for much simpler version
to keep the community and ourselves safe.
Adapting to Covid 19 safety practices created a much different Holiday Stroll experience for Lewisville Morning Rotary members and the community. 
Lewisville Morning Rotary members to participate in a Covid 19 modified version our Santa event for the 2020 Holiday Stroll
 The Lewisville Morning Rotary Club is joining forces with the
Main and Mill Association and the Old Town Business Association
to present a safe Covid 19 version of the traditional Holiday Stroll
at Wayne Ferguson Plaza in Old Town Lewisville
Instead of the traditional Pancakes with Santa on the plaza, club members will be greeting holiday strollers and giving out Santa Treat Sacks for good little children and their folks. To volunteer for one of the remaining time slots click here
