Since 1956, Overly’s Country Christmas® has been a heartwarming holiday tradition for thousands of visitors and tour groups. But, did you know that the light display and the areas in Christmas Village are operated almost entirely by volunteers?
Each year, more than 600 volunteers willingly give of their time to help create holiday memories and traditions for visitors to the light display.
Our family of volunteers comes to us from many different walks of life. Some volunteer as individuals, others come as a family, while others are associated with a group or organization. They come to help create holiday memories and traditions and take with them the feeling of self-satisfaction, the opportunity to learn something new, companionship, or even more importantly, the joy of seeing a smile on a small child’s face.
Getting Involved is about the reminiscing of coming home for Christmas and sharing such fond memories with future generations via volunteering, sponsoring or donating.
Whatever the circumstances, we are grateful for our volunteers. They are as much a part of Overly’s Country Christmas® as the lights themselves. It is because of their tireless work that Overly’s Country Christmas® can continue its holiday traditions and charitable purposes.
