Good Evening!

I hope this message finds you well.

On behalf of the hardworking team with the Valley Fire Relief Fund –The Press Democrat, Redwood Credit Union and our Senate Office – we would like to invite you to a very special event, Christmas in Middletown.

This holiday event, a partnership with the Middletown Area Merchants Association, will be kicking off at noon on Saturday, Dec. 12 with a celebration of community and free pasta lunch for all Middletown and South Lake County residents. The lunch will be hosted at the Fire Protection District’s Middletown Station, 21095 Highway 175. 

Santa will be at the lunch giving out gift certificates to the kids from Middletown merchants, a holiday prize drawing will be taking place and neighborhood heroes will be honored for their unwavering commitment to the South Lake County community during the Valley Fire crisis and the continued recovery efforts. 

In addition, we’ll be presenting an $800,000 check that will be donated to over 1,000 residents who lost their homes to the Valley Fire. Nearly $1 million has previously been distributed to hundreds of South Lake County school kids, residents, emergency responders and local farmers and ranchers from the Valley Fire Relief Fund. 

And then that evening, all Middletown area businesses will be open late for shopping, dining and Christmas cheer. Santa will arrive at the new Middletown Park in front of the Senior Center on a fire truck at 5:30 p.m.  

To RSVP for the lunch, contact Karlene Rebich at Karlene.Rebich@sen.ca.gov or by calling (707) 576-2771.

Thank you for considering this invitation. We really hope you can join us on Saturday, December 12 at noon!

Warmest Regards,



State Senator
