Chamber to Host Special Christmas Events This Weekend
The Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring their yearly Holiday Decorated Lighting Contest. First, second and third prizes will be awarded in Memphis Bucks for decorated residences. The best overall decorated business will receive a special holiday basket of goodies.
If you would like to enter your residence or if you would like to nominate a neighbor, entries may be submitted to the Memphis Democrat on the west side of the Memphis square. Please be sure to leave the name and address of your entry. Judging will be done this Saturday evening, December 18th.
Also Santa Claus day in Memphis will be this Saturday, December 18th. Santa will arrive by a fire truck following the movie at the Memphis Theatre. The Cinema will host a special matinee at 1:30 with patrons asked to bring a canned food item for the food pantry in lieu of an entry fee. The Memphis and Scotland County Fire Department will also offer free fire truck rides for the kids, and the kids can meet Santa following the movie at the Memphis VFW.
