Lucky in this parish, we have plenty of both. Don Kline and Marianne Hanshaw, Main Street, probably just couldn’t go out without those two! They’re so fantastic and I’ve done it for so many years. The city has helped all the trees shine. The room is fantastic. Everyone getting along and supporting each other was amazing. Business Saturday really made our weekend. Many of them are signed up for our SNOW promo and have special activities. Really cool stuff. Many of them have giveaway days. We also have a scavenger hunt We’re going to have it. All the stores that are involved in SNOW are going to have a kit that you can go to their store and find. They’ll also have bingo cards that you initial once you find the kit. Then you drop your filled bino card into Santa’s mailbox on the street at the fountain and big We will draw a prize winner who will receive a gift basket full of local goodies.”
