Coal Creek Oral Surgery Seasonal Favorites
As locals, Dr. Hayes and the team at Coal Creek Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center love this time of year. Whether you enjoy shopping late into the evening or just finding special memories to make with your family, Lafayette, Co has no shortage of holiday traditions. Here are a few of the things you need to be sure to check out over the course of the next several weeks:
November 24th – Shop Small Saturday
Love to shop on Black Friday? Shop Small Saturday is the next day (Saturday of Thanksgiving week.) While it’s popular here in Lafayette, it’s actually a nation-wide approach to stimulate local economies by shopping local. When you do, community businesses and individuals right here in Lafayette benefit and it’s a great way to support the neighborhood you live in. Plus, all of the tax dollars invested go back into our local parks, recreation, streets, etc. You can get a list of local participating businesses here: https://www.cityoflafayette.com/DocumentCenter/View/22764
November 30th – Santa Cop
Hosted by the Lafayette Police Department, the “Santa Cop” program is one that coordinates gift donations for local families in need. They primarily need donations for ages 7-15. You can find donation boxes throughout Lafayette, including the Library, City Hall, Recreation Center, and of course the police department!
