Check out the “Sounds of the Season” this morning – we have special guests from Western Branch performing some holiday carols. This group will also be performing this weekend - to raise money to fight cancer.

Christmas on the Farm will be held this weekend - here is the information. 

Join in the fun at the First Annual Christmas on the Farm Fundraiser for the American Cancer Society/Relay for Life!

We will have horse drawn wagon rides through the fields of Christmas lights for $5.00. Santa will be on site, there will be a free kids take home craft table, plenty of good food, warm drinks, and yummy treats for sale. Other activities include face painting, more than 30 vendors in a holiday shopping area, local groups to perform your favorite Christmas tunes, and bon fires to roast some marshmallows!

Bring money and be ready to shop, have a good time, and support a great cause.
