Our “Major League Teams" of December


“Christmas at the Cannon” 

  This is the fifteenth year that organizations, businesses, and individuals have  donated money and time for an awesome event, “Christmas at the Cannon”, held at the Quiet Cannon restaurant in Montebello. 

  On Saturday, December 23, 2006, at least three thousand pre-registered individuals will receive a Christmas dinner.  Additionally, each family will receive a food basket and each youth up to age fourteen will be given a toy.  There will be an invocation and entertainment. 

   The coming together of organizations, businesses, and people to put on this event is inspiring.  “My Montebello” is listing them here from the printed program, hoping that, next year, there be even more organizations, businesses, and people listed.

“Adopt a Family”

 The Montebello Lions Club adopts a needy family for a year, beginning at Christmas.  A Lion member dresses as Santa Claus and rides in a limousine donated by ABA Limousine, with an escort by the Montebello police, sirens ahowlin’ and lights ablazin’.  This Santa sensation embarks from city hall, winding through Montebello streets and arriving at the family’s home, where the children are given gifts.   Also, the Lions Club helps the family during the children’s birthdates and at Thanksgiving.  

 This year the adopted family is a single parent with three children.  Santa is to leave city hall at about 3:30 PM Sunday and arrive at the family’s home between 4 and 4:30 PM.
