GRAPELAND – Monday, Dec. 19 at The Little White Church in downtown Grapeland will be a time to experience celebrating Christmas in small-town East Texas. As a part of remembering Christ’s birth, good food and music usually has a part in the memorable festivities that go along with this time of year. The friends of The Little White Church invite you to come by and see what all will be happening to celebrate a community Christmas.
The Grapeland Noons Lions Club will be offering up complimentary chili and fixings, starting at 5:30 p.m. and will serve until its gone. They will be located in the fellowship hall at the rear of the building. You are invited to enjoy your chili in the fellowship hall or take it with you.
Santa Clause will be ready to visit with the boys and girls starting at 5:30 and ending at 7. Santa will be set up inside The Little White Church. The Grapeland Chamber of Commerce is donating a gift to each child visiting Santa. The kiddo’s parents can enjoy live Christmas music while they wait on Santa and join in on a few songs. Local musicians, Stuart and Tammy Anderson will play acoustic seasonal tunes during this time. The couple will bring to Grapeland their collection of traditional music they have performed for the Jefferson Tour of Homes and other similar regional Christmas events.
Then at 7 p.m., Community Christmas Caroling will commence, with Mrs. Frances Jordan on piano. Please come out and enjoy part or all of Grapeland’s Christmas celebration.
