PAINT LICK — I feel like a kid this cold, Tuesday morning, just waiting for the coming Friday evening when the Christmas tree in front of the arts center will be lit up for all to enjoy.

If you like, arrive just a bit early with one of your favorite ornaments and make your light shine as you hang it on the little blue spruce.

This is a special time for all of Paint Lick to come together as we visit the center and see the newest display of the arts and listen to some really special music.

Hal and Yvonne Davis welcome everyone into their fold of fellowship through the community arts center. The event will start at 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 925-2741.

It’s time for cleaning out, cleaning up and getting things ready for Paint Lick’s Annual Christmas in The Village.

This Saturday, here in the street, starting at 9 a.m., our small village is the place to be, where children of all ages can learn to make their own crafts and ornaments for the Christmas tree.

Afterward, they can enjoy the Christmas story as told by  the Rev. Wayne Dunn of White Lick Baptist Church.

Then, the long-awaited show at 11:30 a.m., when Santa should be starting up the engine of the big fire truck.  Santa and his little helper, Jess, will be listening for any wishes.

Volunteers here at Friends of Paint Lick will have some raffle items available for the special gift-giver and hot coffee and hot chocolate will be available, also.

The morning will be warmer when you have enjoyed hot dogs at Paint Lick’s new G & L Grocery. You can call Lennie at 925-9000 for any questions you may have about their new store.

Then, at noon, after the “Santa Show,” everyone is welcome to come to Friends and have some homemade chili. Raffled items are to be given away at 1 p.m.  

I am looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday at our Christmas in the Village.

May God bless.
