Lynnville notes

Friday, December 4, 2009

December is here and it is time to think about Christmas and all the doings going on during this special time of year.

Santa Claus is making an evening stop in Lynnville again this year for the 25th Annual Lynnville Christmas Parade that comes with lights.

The parade, organized by the Town of Lynnville and Lynnville Community Club, has selected as this year's theme, "200 Years of Lynnville Christmas." Aaron Solomon, news personality from WSMV-TV in Nashville, will serve as this year's grand marshal.

The 25th Annual Lynnville Lighted Christmas Parade will begin its grand procession at 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Robert Dunnavant Park on Mill Street across from the Co-op.

The parade traditionally features the Richland High School Marching Band, a variety of floats and other entries, and Santa Claus riding at the rear of the parade. Entries that want to be judged should be at the parade site by 4:15 p.m. Trophies will be awarded in the following categories: Grand prize, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th; Mayor's Trophy; Most Unique Entry; and lst, 2nd, and 3rd for other units. For more information contact 931-527-0032 or 931-527-3922.

Following the parade, a reception will be held in the Lynnville Municipal building for everyone to attend and meet Aaron Solomon and his family.

Hope to see you in Lynnville on Saturday, Dec. 5, for the 25th Annual Lynnville Lighted Christmas Parade.

Lynnville's Town Square is decorated so well this year for Christmas. The lights come on each evening by 5 p.m. Take a drive to Lynnville and see the decorations. We again thank everyone who helped in decorating the town and the Municipal Building and the Reid Theater.

Those featured in the Maury County Art Gallery with their paintings are visual art members Vicky Garner, Lou Innamoiato, and Eileen Moore.

The artists have exhibited their work throughout the United States and many paintings are displayed by private collectors.

There will be an open house and reception on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 4 to 6 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to attend.

Be sure to buy some Lynnville Christmas Cards and notecards with drawings of the Lynnville First Baptist Church, Lynnville First Presbyterian Church, Lynnville Methodist Church, Lynnville Church of Christ, Lynnville Depot, Robert B. Jones High School, Jones High Gymnasium, and the Lynnville Town Square. These cards can be mailed to anyone by calling 931-527-3922. These would be good Christmas gifts.

The "Lynnville Home Decorating Contest" is for those citizens living inside the Lynnville City Limits. The date for entering your home and the date for the judging will be in this column later. Start making plans to decorate your home and enter the contest. Cash awards are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

The Lynnville First Presbyterian Church Choir and Children's Choir and others will present an evening of Christmas Music on Sunday, Dec. 13, beginning at 5 p.m. in the sanctuary of the church. Following the program, a Christmas potluck dinner will be served in the fellowship hall of the church. Everyone is invited to attend.

The Lynnville Literary and Fine Arts Society will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the Lynnville First Presbyterian Church.
