Christmas Parade of Homes set for Dec. 3rd

Mark your calendar and reserve Saturday, Dec. 3, to attend the Relay For Life of Pickett County Christmas Parade of Homes.
Christmas is a wonderful time to pay it forward and share blessings with others. Money raised by your local Relay For Life goes to the American Cancer Society who funds various cancer patient support programs, advocacy, education and research. Pickett County has been very generous in supporting this community fund raising event and has placed our event in the number one position per capita many times. This would not happen without the community support.
This year for our Christmas Parade of Homes we will have the great pleasure of viewing the home of Rob, Debbie and Ben Cross and the home of Derrick and Angie Robbins and family. We still need two or three more homes for this wonderful event, if interested please contact Judy Storie at 931-864-3928.
More information will be in future issues of the Pickett Press.
