Last night was the CA Conservation Corps Christmas party. Fortuna Mayor, Sue Long, thanked the Corpsmembers for all of their help and hard work on projects in our community. The Chamber handed out Christmas stockings to each member stuffed full of candy, lip balm, socks, gloves, and more, graciously donated by local merchants. Cupcakes, prepared by the Culinary Arts Program at Fortuna High, and Cider, provided by Clendenens, were gobbled up while Santa and Mrs. Claus posed for pictures.

Thank you to the following merchants who helped sponsor this event with donations for the stockings: Fortuna Kiwanis, McLean Foundation, Strehls, Recology, Grocery Outlet, Redwood Capital, Umpqua Bank, US Bank, Tri- Counties Bank, Green's Pharmacy, St. Joseph Health, Hummel Tire & Wheel, and Jeff Northern Family.

Thank you to our Chamber members for helping stuff the stockings and to our Ambassadors for helping decorate and host the party.

And a huge THANK YOU to the California Conservation Corps for over 1,000 hours of volunteer time for community events. And for their tireless efforts each and every year keeping our parks, trails, habitats, and communities beautiful!!

Here's our house... it has been so wonderful seeing all of the lights around town! ❤ I love our city!

Conquered my crippling fear of heights to put lights on the house this year.... I hope it brightens everyone’s Christmas just a little!

Gary Caston Sara Schultz your house is on here.

Renee Lindsay I’m so excited to see you in your new role. You will be amazing! Congrats!

Hi everyone, we want to bring some Christmas spirit to our community, so tonight from 6pm to 7:30pm, we invite you to enjoy hot cocoa, candy canes (weather-permitting), and of course, our lights! Our part of town has some great light displays, so come by then take a drive around our wonderful city to see all of the holiday decorations🤗. -->1777 Xavier Ct. in Fortuna <-- **Tune to 95.7 to enjoy our light-up tree**
