Goldonna News: December 14, 2022

Christmas Cheer for all to hear! Or see, rather. The Goldonna Christmas in the Park Lighted Parade was the backdrop for many smiles, cheers, candy catching, holiday music and family fun. The parade that rolled down the spectator packed streets boasted over thirty entries. Santa and Mrs. Claus made their debut along with their favorite reindeer, Rudolph. Minnie Mouse, among others, also visited the parade route filled with delighted children.

The parade line up was organized by Mrs. Jade Burke, she has also served on the CITP Committee for the past few years.

Mason Rachal served as the emcee for the parade. Pageant Director, Mikalee Sawyer, was on hand to coordinate the visits from area Queens. Once again the Goldonna Christmas in the Park provided food at no cost to the visitors. This year they even enjoyed gumbo! Special thanks to Eugean Garner, Connie Conley, Novel and Fonda Garner, Candace Smith, Sharlene Settle, Gayle Cloud and Penny Killingsworth for assisting with serving the food.

Goldonna Elementary Junior High School host its Annual Christmas Program on Thursday, December 22nd at 6:00 in the school auditorium.

Because we use evergreens all year round and not just seasonally it is a very profitable business. There are 15000 farms growing Christmas trees in the U.S. alone.
