5th Annual Snowman Building Contest and S’mores for Sight–Cancelled


This is one of our favorite community events and we are sad that due to Mother Natures poor cooperation the City of Buchanan is cancelling this years event.....but the Snowcones for Sight is  only 7 months away!!


We have so much fun sponsoring this event. This is our Fifth year and the event keeps growing and growing. We hope this year will be the best yet!!

Combined our annual Snowman building contest and "S'mores for Sight" station have earned over $1,000 in cash and gifts for entrants. More than 450 hours in volunteer hours and $3,000 in in-kind contributions.  We hope to see that grow this year. The S'mores for Sight station provided a cracking fire for friends and family to warm up, visit and build their own s'more for a donation to the Buchanan's Lion Club. The last event raised nearly $200.00 for the Buchanan-Galien Lions Club to help the visually needy in the community.

Now is the time to start planning your snowman entry for the event. Participants plan their own snowman and fill out an entry form. We encourage early registration but it is not mandatory. Space is limited so entrants are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
