We would like to thank the Fultondale Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring the Christmas tree lighting Monday night. We would also like to thank Santa for appearing, the children of Fultondale Elementary for making the ornaments and the Fultondale street department for getting the area ready. Everyone had a great time and we had a good turnout.
• The Fultondale City Council will meet on Monday at 6 p.m. The next Fultondale Chamber meeting will be an after-hours meeting on Dec. 23 at Stix Restaurant from 5 to 7 p.m.
• We would like to thank the local businesses that participated in the storefront decorating contest. The winners were: What-a-Burger, best all-around; Jernigan Healthcare, best Christian theme; Fultondale Florist, most creative; and Terry Hogeland of Walker Drive won best home decoration. Thanks to everyone who participated.
• Fultondale First Baptist Church will be having a Christmas Windows live program Dec. 18-20 at 6 p.m.The tour, a walk-through of Christ from birth to crucifixion, lasts approximately 20 minutes. Please make plans to come out and see this live program.
• I would like to send congratulations to our fire chief, Larry Holcomb, who received his bachelor's degree in Fire Science on Dec. 8.
• I would like to send a happy belated birthday wish to Scottie Fassina who turned the “big 5-0” on Nov. 19. I hope he had a wonderful birthday.
• Congratulations to Traci (Newcomb) Jones and George A Jones and big sister Lexie of Fultondale in the birth of their newest addition to the family, Lathan Alan. Lathan was born Nov. 23 at 2:30 p.m. He weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20.5-inches long. The overjoyed grandparents are Susie Newcomb, Frank and Peggy Siragusa and great-grandmother Lexie Jones. We hope this new bundle of joy brings them a lifetime of happiness.
• As we all know Christmas is just two weeks away. Because of the hustle and bustle of this time of year, this will probably be my last article until January 2010. I want to wish each and every one of you a very, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember the reason for the season — Christ was born on Christmas Day and he came to save us from our sins. Also remember it is better to give than to receive.
