THE LIGHTING CEREMONY
HAVING FUN AT THE LIGHTING CEREMONY AT THE COURT HOUSE.
Last week I went to the wonderful ceremony to light the downtown Christmas. There I was staring into one of the lovely Christmas bells (see below) and the idea came to me almost like a message from the almighty God. The message was make blog, become a neighbor, invest in your community so here I am with the first ever blog post in the new and very interesting Garza Gazette.
The ceremony was really nice Judge Norman and Harry gave a presentation and the bell choir rang out some very nice Christmas tunes and best of all the children’s choir from the first Baptist school sang their praises to the memory of the little king. The skies were cloudy but the temperature was mild giving the appearance of a wintery day but instead pretty darn nice outside. Ole Gert got to see her good friends Janice and Rosa and wave to Harry and the Judge from a far.
