Clarks Landing and The Mill Lakeside Manor Holiday Toy “Drive By”

The Clarks Landing Group’s wedding venues, Clarks Landing Yacht Club and The Mill Lakeside Manor are hosting a Holiday Toy “Drive By” to collect Toys of Joy for local children with pediatric illness this holiday season, in support of Friends of JJ.

The community is invited to drive by either location anytime between 5PM-8PM on Wednesday, December 9th, to deliver unwrapped toys, see the venue’s holiday lights and enjoy delicious treats. As everyone remains comfortable in their car, elves will bring hot chocolate and candy canes while collecting the toys. Children are welcome to bring their Christmas lists and the elves will make sure to deliver them to Santa.
