The Norwood Business Association was in full force for the Norwood Christmas Parade.
The weather was perfect and there was a larger than normal crowd that gathered to see the tree lighting, watch tumblers and see Santa. Santa and Mrs. Clause handed out almost 100 gifts, donated by the Norwood Business Association.
Thank you to all who helped…Lee Snuggs for donating the tree, Sherry at SS Services who picked out the Christmas tree, the Town of Norwood for setting up the tree, Don at Cadillac Sign who hung the lights on the tree, Burt and Barbara at Norwood Camping for donating and putting lights on the bushes and running electric cords, Mayor Beverly Johnson for announcing the lighting, Jimmy Colson for being Santa, Kasey Allen for being Mrs. Clause, Norwood Police for getting Santa from the end of the parade back to the tree lighting, the fire department for providing lighting, Culp electronics for the speaker system, Mandy Melton for her fantastic tumblers and the Town of Norwood employees for providing mats, set up and clean up, the Allen family for donating, preparing and serving popcorn to all, Debbie Malartz for photo’s.
There are so many people that give their time and efforts to an event like this. Burt and Barbara Slater with Norwood Campground have been the Christmas chair people for years and they always give their time generously, special Thanks to them for their tireless support of the Norwood Business Association.
Norwood Business Association presented a $1000 check to Starla Morris from South Stanly Middle School.
