Big plans for Ripley Village Christmas weekend

By Fred Dengler –

The Ripley River Village Christmas weekend Dec. 9-11 keeps growing!
The First State Bank is hosting Santa from 9am to 12pm Saturday December 10 at the Ripley location.  Get your picture with Santa, drop off your list!
There will also be treats and snacks for you to enjoy.  Rockin’ Robins is hosting the St. Michael Rosary Alter Society bake sale on Saturday morning.
The ladies are going to have all sorts of tasty baked goods including peanut bars, brownies, Christmas cookies and fresh rolls and bread.  Come by early!  Rockin’ Robins is also donating all proceeds from their Pancake and Sausage breakfast on Saturday morning to help Anita Flaugher and Wendy Blackburn with their medical expenses. The pancakes and sausage are sooooo good.
Santa will also be at the Tobacco Museum Saturday afternoon from 1pm to 4pm.  Get a professional picture with Santa and make sure he knows what you would like for Christmas.
Also before River Village Christmas be sure to stop by the RULH Winter Wonderland at the Elementary School December 2 from 5-7pm.  The Wonderland will include Santa, a chili supper, kid’s games, vendors, and auction items.
Then on December 2 at 7pm in the RULH Middle School cafetorium don’t miss the hilarious Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a play about putting on a Christmas pageant.  You won’t believe the mayhem and fun!
Have you reserved your Angel for the Angel Tree at the Ripley Museum ?  Are you practicing for the Songfest being held on the Sunday afternoon or River Village Christmas?  You could win a $100 cash prize!
Also have you entered the Huge RVC Raffle?  We have dozens of great prizes including $50 cash from D&H Heating and AC, Gift certificates from Co-Hearts, Sunset, Rockin’ Robins, Olde Piano Factory, and many other items.
Look for the RVC Raffle buckets around town at our local merchants.  Be sure to decorate for the holidays with the free greenery in front of the big red barn on 3rd  St. after Thanksgiving.  See you at the Library Tree lighting at 5:30 on December 9 when we officially kick off RVC.
Be sure to attend the Community Concert on Saturday night at the 1st Presbyterian Church. Plan on the Christmas Candlelight House Tour with 12 beautiful locations on Sunday from 1 to 5pm.
Tickets for the House Tour are available starting at 12:30 Sunday at the Ripley Museum.
Look for more information in the paper or email fredd@mikal.com with any questions or comments.  Merry Christmas!
