Ralph Roy Waggener: An idea for a Christmas swap meet

A thought for next year which could take place in the old courthouse

By Ralph Roy Waggener

When getting out all of our Christmas decorations a thought hit me: what if next year a swap meet on Christmas decorations was held in the old Courthouse. Swapping or selling or even giving away decorations that are not being used as we buy new ones; what is old to one household would be like new to another home.

Getting people together in a Christmas gathering could be a good thing. Just a thought, I know from a simple thought big ideas can come. Thanks. Hoping everyone in my Adair County has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! - Ralph Roy Waggener
