Thorndale sets lighting for Christmas lot Dec. 1

THORNDALE—The annual lighting of the Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas display lot on US 79 has been set. This year’s theme is “Jesus is the Light of the World.”

The celebration of lights and music with Christmas carols will take place directly south of the post office at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, according to spokesperson Marilyn Johnson.

Work days began Oct. 8 and will continue at 1 p.m. each Tuesday until Nov. 26.

“Please come and help when you can and start preparing your display for the lighting. Santa will be giving out a bag of treats for everyone. If you have new ideas or lighting additions and need help please let us know. The committee will be glad to work with you,” Johnson said.

“We are asking individuals, churches, businesses and organizations to consider constructing a display to be used for this event or sharing a decoration that they already have,” Johnson added. “We ask that your display be large enough to be viewed by people passing through Thorndale and that it contain lights for night time viewing. This will make the lighting event something special for all to enjoy.”

An invitation is extended to area church choirs and musicians. If you belong to a choir, please share this opportunity with your members. The Thorndale ISD Band and the Communities in Concert will also be invited to participate.
