Sunman rings in holiday season Nov. 22

Sunman residents will gear up for three holidays Friday, Nov. 22, from 5-8 p.m. with events sponsored by the Sunman Area Chamber of Commerce.

“The kickoff celebration will offer many activities to usher in the holiday season and get everyone in the mood to celebrate,” reports SACC member Carla Hacker. “The evening will encompass the Thanksgiving holiday and the New Year in addition to Christmas and promises to offer fun for the entire family.”

A parade begins at 6 p.m. “Everyone is encouraged to put in a float or walk in the parade and participate to show your holiday spirit. Please be creative,” she stresses. “We are hoping participants will showcase their favorite holiday ... and dress the part. Bring your pets dressed up as well.”

Lineup begins at 5 p.m. at Trees Mobile Home Park, 418 S. Meridian St. The procession will go north on Meridian Street to the former Ripley-Ohio-Dearborn Special Education Cooperative building, where Santa will light the Christmas tree. It will then turn east on Maple Street, south on Kuebel Street and east on Eastern Avenue, ending at Kenneth L. Diver American Legion Post 337.

Local participating businesses will be open later that evening, be set up around town or have a booth at the Legion. The post also has booth spaces available for vendors at $10 each for the bazaar. Persons can call Ed Gindling at 812-623-2972 for more information.

Following the parade, Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit the children there and collect their Christmas lists. There will be crafts and activities to keep them occupied while they wait to see the jolly old elf. Food and drinks will also be available.

In addition, other activities will take place throughout the town. Schoolchildren will be singing carols, reindeer will be on display and there will be a petting zoo. The chamber will be collecting nonperishables for the Sunman Food Pantry at the ROD Center and Legion. Bins will be close to the Christmas trees at both locations.
