Tired of wrapping presents? Not enough time to enjoy the holidays? Well, you’re in luck because the membesr of the Mountain Arts Network will be happy to wrap your gifts, right in Lake Arrowhead Village, and the donation you make will go directly to the Boys and Girls Club in Crestline. This is a “no-brainer.” Take your purchases to the store that is located between Papagayo’s Restaurant and Claire’s jewelry on the upper level of Lake Arrowhead Village.

Wrapping is available every Saturday and Sunday  through December 23 from noon to 4 p.m.

Isn’t this a great idea? You get to sit and have a cup of coffee (or have lunch at Papagayo’s) while the gifts you’ve purchased get wrapped (not rapped) by someone else. You make a donation and the proceeds go to the local club site. This is definitely a holiday “win-win” situation.
