Upcoming Holiday Events


Editor’s Note: It’s time for Christmas and our annual Holiday Calendar! Today we begin that calendar with listings of Christmas events planned at area churches. The calendar, however, will quickly expand to include events at schools and those sponsored by clubs and organizations. Send your event to Philip Case, pcase@state-journal.com, drop it by the newspaper at 1216 Wilkinson Blvd., or call Phil at 227-4556. Be sure to include all pertinent “who, what, where and when” information and if there’s an admission charge. If you have questions, be in touch with Phil. Non-holiday church events will continue to be listed in “Church News in Brief.”
