La Verkin Community Christmas Eve Program

I thought it odd that a town would have a Christmas Eve program, but this town has been having one since 1906.  The Royalty is always asked to participate. The event is held in the Old White it is locally called.  Many years ago it served as a church for this area, but now City Council Meetings are held in the chapel, plays and election voting are held in the gym, and classrooms have been turned into storage closets.

Brooklyn was very excited to perform one of her favorite Christmas songs, "Where's the Line to See Jesus?"  She did an excellent job and afterwards many told me that they were so touched by that song; that it had brought the spirit of Christmas to them at that very moment.

After the performance, the girls were asked to help Santa hand out treats to the children.  They were given oranges and brown paper sacks with candy in them.  It was a nice hour and a enjoyable place to be on Christmas Eve.
