Pella Christian Grade School students brought a little holiday cheer to Pella shoppers on Wednesday afternoon by singing Christmas carols. This disciple group, comprised of students in kindergarten through eighth grade, come together for community projects throughout the year. Chaperone and fourth-grade teacher Brenda Nugteren said the purpose of the disciple group is to come together and develop community with each other as Christians.
Those dreaming of a White Christmas this year may be out of luck, but before the holiday, conditions may become hazardous before giving way to bitter cold. The National Weather Service predicts a chance of drizzle and freezing drizzle today, especially in the evening, with trace amounts of ice possible under .05” by the overnight hours. Following the light precipitation, much drier conditions are in the forecast, all but eliminating the chance of snow on the ground for Christmas. On average, there is a 40-50% chance of a White Christmas annually.
