Did You Hear

Christmas in Rogersville -- Big Day 
December 15, 2012

Did you hear about the annual Parade of Lights?  This event is set to start at 5 PM on December 8, 2012 at the Joe Wheeler State Park Marina.  tomorrow's event showcases many of the boats that dock at the park's marina as they sail and/or motor past the park Lodge decked out with Christmas Cheer (and not just a few lights)!!

Did you hear about the annual Rogersville Christmas Parade?  Starting along Lee Street at around 5 PM on December 15, 2012, this event is the Christmas Parade you remember from your younger years (given you have been around the block a few times).  With a marching band, floats, singing, lights flashing from police car and fire trucks, candy thrown into the crowd lining the parade route this annual event is sure to bring back and create great memories. And, of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will be there.

Did you hear about the annual Rogersville Yule Log Ceremony?  Set to start about 15 minutes or so from the end of the parade (6 PM, December 15, 2012), this great Christmas celebration takes place in the 1881 Presbyterian church building on Lee Street just west of the downtown area.  Enjoy songs of the season performed by local singers while partaking of cookies and hot cider provided by the local Civitan club.  For those that are not sure, a yule log ceremony signifies thanks for the past year along with the hope of good tidings for the future.    

Have a blessed Day. Betty Maloney
