Bringing the Magic to Sparta

If you had the opportunity to come to Shop Sparta on November 17th, then you know, that night was truly something special. Families and friends gathered together. The Christmas Lights illuminated the joy on everyone's faces as they counted down with Santa for the tree lighting. Beautiful displays of lights paraded on floats through downtown. The community united to kick off Christmas, and it was nothing short of magical.

As beautiful as it was, none of it could have happened without some very wonderful volunteers who made it all happen.

Volunteers from Independent Bank strung up the lights throughout Candy Cane Lane! There were dozens of strands of lights, but these volunteers didn't back down and their help made Candy Cane Lane glow!

Dedicated volunteers from C & I Building Maintenance braved the

elements to put up Candy Cane Lane decorations. It was cold and rainy, but they were out there anyway, working hard to make Candy Cane Lane as beautiful as ever!

At Shop Sparta, City Church took charge of the hot cocoa station, no easy task. They made and handed out 1,000 cups of hot chocolate! Although the job may have seemed daunting to some, their volunteers never lost their sense of Christmastime joy.

Volunteers from Tom's Bakery were just as dedicated to bringing Christmas to Sparta! They ran the s'more roasting area in Sparta Town Square. They passed out roasting sticks and supplies, and made sure that it ran smoothly! Thanks to their help, everyone could enjoy a sweet treat while taking in all of the Christmas fun!

The Sparta Lions Club lived up to their motto: "We serve." They helped to

organize the lighted parade for everyone to enjoy! They provided wreaths for the wreath giveaway and got the turkeys donated for the turkey giveaway! They even helped to pass out the wreaths and turkeys once the winners were announced! The parade and giveaway are always highlights of this event, and the volunteers from the Sparta Lions Club made them happen!

We are so grateful for these many organizations who came together to bring this magical night to Sparta. We truly couldn't have done it without them! Thank you to every single person who came out to make Shop Sparta happen!
