As the 2013 season comes to a close, I can't help to reflect on great memories this year.

At first, I thought there wouldn't be a light show due to delays in getting those special lights for our trees.  They came in and we got to work immediately.  When Thanksgiving rolled around, it was time to Glossary Link flip the switch.  With new lights, new software, and new network infrastructure, it was finally on.



Now, time to prepare for our annual Christmas Celebration.  The fire station was being cleaned, tables set up, and Crystal & Hannah Pruitt and Mary Rector placed the final touch on the interior decorations.  Then, Judy Pancoast stopped by for a fourth straight year.  She entertained everyone with music from her Christmas album.  Plus, all the kids visiting, spent some quality time with Santa on his sleigh and with the Chick-Fil-A cow too.   All of the food sold that night, benefited Glade Creek School.  They recieved $350 to help purchase a P.A. system for their cafeteria.  Even the teachers that came out to help had loads of fun.



The Saturday before Christmas, hundreds came out to see Santa one last time.  We had free hot coco, treat bags, and have your picture with Santa.  Everyone who visited, enjoyed the evening.

 

 



And, that takes us here before hitting the "Off" switch for the 2013 season.  We really hate to see the lights go off each year.  It brings so much fun, excitement, and joy to thousands who visit.  Without you, our show wouldn't be as successful as it has been.  All of our donations collected go to the fire station.  This year, combined with the food sales, we collected over $2K.  That's the most ever in one season.  We know that money will be put to good use throughout the community.



Our plan is simple.  We'll be back next Thanksgiving with more lights, music, and magic for everyone.
