The Cherokee Women's Club, sponsors of last week's Candlelight Walk, wish to extend many thanks to the community:
We also owe big thanks to Valley Lumber for the building for the Live Nativity, Everhart Lumber for the sand for the luminaries, Bill & Barbara Myerson for the use of their storefront for the Cookie Caper, Bill Shadden and friends with the two horse-drawn wagons which carried people around town, Mary & Ray Tallent for the use of the Sunflower Inn for Santa to visit with the children, Monroe County Beautiful for the trash recepticles, Larry Harris for the Grinch, and Mary & Dennis Caldwell of Skyway Antiques for hosting the Gingerbread Contest. Apologies if we've left anyone out, and thank you to all the many other volunteers, live nativity participants, community members, carolers, businesses, churches, musicians, and cookie bakers for their help and support for this event."
This is a special family event, presented annually on the first Saturday in December, beginning at dusk. Step back in time, with flickering luminarias lining the sidewalks, strolling carolers, horse-drawn wagons, and gingerbread houses. Sponsored by the Town of Tellico Plains and organized by the Cherokee Women's Club.
