Annual holiday lighting ceremony will be Nov. 24

Platte City Parks and Recreation Board wishes to remind the community of the upcoming holiday lighting ceremony, Saturday, Nov. 24. The evening begins at 6 p.m. on the courthouse steps.

The annual announcement of the Truman Glenn Award will be presented and last year's recepient, Dr. Carl Myers will be on hand to flip the switch on the holiday lights for the season.

The arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Claus will once again highlight the evening. Tentatively scheduled photos with Santa for $8.

An ensemble from the newly organized Platte City Orchestra, directed by Judy Cook, will provide holiday music prior to the kickoff at 6 p.m. Students from the Siegrist Elementary will also be entertaining with Christmas selections. Round out the festivities with a cup of hot mulled cider served by the Parks and Recreation Board.

A new addition this year will be a soup supper hosted by the Youth
Ministry of the First Baptist Church. The supper will be served at the Baptist Education Building located between Olin Miller Insurance and Ron Pine’s Barbershop. Rumor has it that homemade cinnamon rolls are in store for those attending. Serving begins immediately following the lighting ceremony.

Local stores will be open throughout the evening so plan on
strolling the sidewalks and doing some holiday shopping.

A limited amount of seating is available. Those needing additional information should contact the parks office at 858-5627 or 532-8342.
