Henryetta’s Mayor Bill Goodner, Councilman Audie Cole, the Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses have teamed up to make this year’s Christmas Parade very special.
Mayor Goodner and Councilman Cole wanted to make sure that Santa and his helpers would present a gift to every child, 12 years old and under, attending the December 14th Annual Christmas Parade. So they quickly went to work seeking donations for enough candy to fill over 400 stockings; to meet this goal they coordinated with the Chamber of Commerce and local businesses; they found businesses eager to contribute to the candy fund and over $1,000 was raised for the event.
Thanks to the following business all kids 12 and under attending the Annual Christmas Parade will receive a gift of candy: American Exchange Bank, First National Bank & Trust, First Family Federal Credit Union, James Cox Motors, Integrity Funeral Home, Crosby Real Estate, Henryetta Drug, Burnett Furniture, Edward Jones (Jeremy Roberts), Lou Ann Moudy, Attorney- at-Law, and Bob’s Men’s Store.
Mayor Goodner stated, “Any candy left over from the event will be donated to the Lions Club Christmas Basket Program.”
Make plans to attend Henryetta’s Annual Christmas Parade on December 14th; this year’s theme is “Miracle on Main Street.” The kids, 12 and under, are invited to meet Santa and his helpers at the Cowboy History Park at 5:00 P.M.
The Christmas Bucks drawing for approximately $4,000 in Christmas Bucks is scheduled for approximately 5:00 P.M., and the parade will start at 6:30 P.M.
The Chamber of Commerce encourages those wanting to enter the parade to complete and entry form as soon as possible; the forms are available in the Henryetta Free-Lance, the henryettan.com, and at the Chamber of Commerce. For information call the Chamber at 918-652-3331.
