Christmas in Madison

Making Madison Merry 3The City Madison is dreaming of a white Christmas, and we need your help making Madison Merry and bright. Please consider donating to our Christmas lights campaign. The city will be investing in skylines and wreaths, which will stretch from Cragmont to Walnut Street. The image  depicts our goals for the entire community to get a sentimental feeling when they see everything we have planned for this year's holiday season. All donor names will be displayed outside City Hall for the entire holiday season. Donations can be mailed to City Hall, 101 W. Main St., Madison, IN 47250. Donations can also be made via Paypal.
