A Better Blanchard to Host Small Town Christmas on Dec. 9

The event will have special appearances by Santa, Jack Frost and one of Santa’s helper elves

 BLANCHARD, LA – The first ever Small Town Christmas will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 9, at Town Hall, located at 110 Main Street in Blanchard. This event is free and open to the public.

The event is hosted by A Better Blanchard, a non-profit group of volunteers who desire to improve their town and make the community a better place for residents and visitors.

Town Hall has been decorated with Christmas lights, and there will be a 12-foot Christmas tree with animated lights, snow, a giant snowman, and local choirs for entertainment.

Santa Clause will arrive at 5:30 p.m. He is bringing one of his helper elves and the mischievous Jack Frost. Children will be able to take photos with Santa for free.

Children will also be able to participate in Christmas cookie decorating, face painting, making Christmas ornaments, and more. They will be able to write a letter to Santa and mail it in a special mailbox to the North Pole.

Cowboy Church Chuck Wagon will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs and homemade chilli. There will be vendors selling homemade crafts. Children will receive free hot chocolate and popcorn.

“We were trying to come up with a name for this celebration and my husband said let’s call it a Small Town Christmas because that is what we are,” said Gloria Deyoung, President of Small Town Christmas.

This challenge is compounded by the closure of many rural banks. Larger banks often buy smaller banks, then close branches in more rural markets. There are now 625 rural counties in the country without a community bank. There are 37 counties without a single bank, and 115 counties served by just one bank.

What they will not do, because they can't, is remember: Remember a time before the 9/11 attacks, or the changes in American society that took place in the aftermath of those attacks.
