LUM in the Christmas Parade of Lafayette-West Lafayette



ChristmasParade121202-LUM6On Sunday, December 2, 2012, LUM took part in Indiana’s largest holiday parade, the Lafayette—West Lafayette Christmas Parade.

What a terrific time we had at the 2012 Lafayette-West Lafayette Christmas Parade that special Sunday afternoon.

LUM’s After School Program kids rode the activity buses and waved to the passing crowds.


The teens in the Achieve! program marched along the parade route, carried the LUM banner, and passed out candy.

Even the LUM Board members and staff got in on the act! More than 50 adults and young people participated in the Christmas Parade on behalf of LUM.

Special thanks to Ernie Haupt, Joe Tylenda and Joan Low who drove the buses along the parade route down a very crowded Main Street.

After the Christmas Parade everyone gathered at the LUM Ray Ewry Youth Center for hot chocolate, cookies and a performance of Christmas songs by our children. It was a very special performance.

Extra special thanks to Rev. Cindy Haley, the LUM Youth Program Director, who coordinated all of the afternoon’s Christmas activities!


While enjoying the Lafayette-West Lafayette Christmas Parade, people gave Toys to LUM for  Jubilee Christmas!

Toys will be distributed the next Saturday, December 8, 2012, at one of 25 Jubilee Christmas toy distribution sites. 1,700 children from 700 low-income households will benefit this year.
