Santa and the Christmas Cantata

Santa Claus will be back in Valentine this Saturday from 1 to 4PM at the Security 1st Bank parking lot with his elves and reindeer. Kenners will also be there to offer horse drawn wagon rides to the public.

Another seasonal event in Valentine will be the Christmas Cantata on December 11th at the United Methodist Church. 34 community members have come together under the direction of Bethany Springer to present “Come Let Us Adore” at 7pm that evening. This will be a memorial cantata with the public invited to bring pictures of loved ones for display. The program will last between 45 minutes to one hour and refreshments will be served afterwards. For more information contact Connie Rhodes at 402 333 1361.

The Parade of Lights Winners are as follows:

1st Place:  Dawson & Kime Families

2nd & 3rd Place Tie: Lady Wranglers, Leonard’s Country Christmas, Berry Bridge Campground

 

Quilt Show Winners

First place, $40, went to a sixty year old quilt belonging to Carol Luther.  Her father designed the quilt and both her mother and father embroidered designs of horse and rider in various poses across the quilt.  The embroidery was filled in with thousands of stitches and very well done.

Second place, $25, went to Carolyn Wickett’s pieced quilt.  All borders were pieced and it was a Christmas wall hanging quilt, very well done.

Third place, $10, went to an antique quilt made in the 1930s belonging to Pat Schemmer.  This quilt was an album quilt or signature quilt, precious memories of the past with names of family and friends from the 1930s.

Honorable mention went to Viola Coleman’s tapestry.  It was made in Shelby Co, Indiana in 1850 by her great grandmother.  Her great grandmother gathered, carded, spun and dyed the wool.  Designed the throw, and wove it, putting the date and place in the borders, precious, precious piece.

Thanks to all who entered quilts in our show, to Carolyn Wickett and Arvella Foster who helped work the show and to the Heart of Christmas committee who provided the chamber bucks prizes.
