Letter to the Editor

Edgefield Mayor touts town's Christmas Spirit

web posted November 25, 2009
Dear Edgefield Citizens:
Our town is decorated beautifully again this year and we have a full agenda of upcoming activities scheduled for the holiday season. You can find a complete list of these activities by reading your local news media, viewing channel 16 on the local cable network, watching our commercial on channel 12, or by calling the Chamber of Commerce or Edgefield Town Hall. 

I want to thank the Edgefield Community Development Association, the Heritage Corridor, the Edgefield Regional Arts Council and the many town employees and volunteers who have given their time and talents to make our downtown area so attractive.

In our effort to make the entire town a showplace where residents and visitors can enjoy a good old fashion Christmas spirit, I am sponsoring the fourth annual “Home Decorating Contest”. 

I am encouraging as many residents as possible to decorate the exterior of their homes again this year. You will need to call or stop by Town Hall (637-4014) to register your home. You may also enter your friends and neighbors. Entries will be judged on Thursday, December 10th between 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM and the winner will be announced on the square at 7:30 PM. 

There will be two categories judged again this year: Traditional and Holly Jolly.  The winners will receive a special edition of Christmas pottery made in Edgefield, just for this event.  A special thanks to Ed Redman and Gary Clontz for their effort in designing and making the Christmas pottery.

It continues to be a pleasure to be your mayor and experience first hand, the spirit and enthusiasm happening in Edgefield.  In all the excitement of the holidays, let’s not forget the real reason we celebrate.  Take a moment and reflect on the true meaning of the season and spread a little joy to those who may be less fortunate this year!

As always, thank you for your continued support and for “SHOPPING EDGEFIELD FIRST”.

Ken Durham
Mayor, Edgefield SC
