Christ­mas comes to So­cial Cir­cle

The Covington News - - LIVING - DANIELLE EVER­SON deverson@cov­

It looked a lit­tle bit more like Christ­mas in So­cial Cir­cle as the com­mu­nity gath­ered to­gether for the an­nual Light­ing of the Tree cer­e­mony on Satur­day night.

The So­cial Cir­cle High School march­ing band played “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” as Santa and Mrs. Claus rode into the city on bushels of hay pulled by a trac­tor.

Chil­dren lined up to take pic­tures with Santa and Mrs. Claus as the com­mu­nity lis­tened to singing from the First Bap­tist Church chil­dren’s choir com­bined with sev­eral other choirs.

Peo­ple also had the op­por­tu­nity to line up for hot choco­late, which was served by the lo­cal Boy Scout Troop and Clearview Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter; take a trip around the city with a hayride; and roast marsh­mal­lows, which were pro­vided the city’s fire de­part­ment.
