The Christmas in the Park Planning Committee has a new aspiration for the 2009 holiday season. The committee, consisting of Karen Davenport, John Hawkins, Lisa Lever and Karen Richardson, has set up a black box in Heritage Park to fund decorations for the 2009 Christmas in the Park. The four buildings located in the park, including the Farr House, Telephone Building, School House and Log Cabin, will don decorations both inside and out from their respective time periods. Additional lighting will also be provided along walkways and the pavilion.

Docents will staff the buildings for tours during a two-week time period in December, at which time choirs will also perform seasonal songs.

Special permission was requested from the Somervell County Commissionerís Court for the use of Heritage Park and electricity use within the park. Additional information will be provided when event details are finalized.
