A 2017 Red Cliff Christmas!
On December 16, 2017 around 30 people joined together to spread some holiday cheer by caroling throughout the Town and singing to some of our elderly residents. Afterwards, everyone returned to Mango's 2nd floor for free hot chocolate and cider with a bonfire out back to warm up around.  Even Santa made a special visit and presented a gift to every Red Cliff child on his list!

There was also a tasty bake sale and in exchange for donations to the Community Fund Jar, folks were able to take home an ornament for their tree.  The Community Fund raised $340 during the event and those funds will go towards holding a Valentine's Day Dance.

We are looking forward to continuing this annual event next Christmas!

Red Cliff's Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Saturday, November 18, 2017

4:00PM - 7:00PM - at the Town Auditorium - 400 Pine St

Come join in on a wonderful yearly event where the residents of the Town of Red Cliff gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving, catch up with neighbors, talk about football, hunting adventures or brag about their children and grand children. 

Our own Mango's Mountain Grill is preparing 3 turkeys, mashed potatoes, gravy & stuffing and we ask that residents bring a favorite family side dish or a dessert to share with everyone. In the past we have enjoyed some pretty incredible homemade chili, vegetable casseroles and mouth watering pies! The Town will also provide coffee, ice tea and lemonade.

After we have eaten to our hearts content and before the drowsiness sets in, the local children will start up the traditional Bingo game! This has always been a fun way to get everyone involved and certainly tests your ability to think quickly and try to keep up with the kids.

There will be a side dish/dessert sign-up sheet at the Green Bridge Inn so we can keep track of who is bringing what. If you are unable to bring something, please feel free to help with the set up and/or clean up as this is an all volunteer event and we appreciate any kind of help.

For more information, please call the Town Office: 970-827-5303
