The recent Christmas in New Castle was a huge success. We had the biggest crowd ever. I want to start out by thanking everyone who came out to support Christmas in New Castle.
I want to also thank the City of New Castle and its employees, the Henry County Judge Executive’s office, New Castle Masonic Lodge, Santa for taking time out of his busy schedule to ride in our parade and talking with the children in The Locker afterwards, all parade participants, Henry County Sherriff’s Department, New Castle Fire Department, all the vendors who set up in The Locker, all the shoppers, New Castle Elementary Kindergarten Class for making decorations to decorate our tree, New Castle United Methodist and Friends Choir, Rev. Tommy Lanham, Cook’s Pharmacy, Horner Novelty of Jeffersonville, Ind., and Louisville Mega Cavern. I want to also thank the businesses and individuals who put candles in their windows. We invite you to keep the candles in your windows year round(they are welcome light).
I want to also thank everyone that has told me this is the best Christmas Festival we have ever had.
I want to say congratulations to the float winners in the twilight parade: 1st place, Henry County Humane Society/4H; 2nd place, New Castle United Methodist Church Little Fish Youth Group; and 3rd place, New Castle Christain Church. Congrats to all.
The 30th Annual New Castle Spring Fling will be Saturday, June 9, 2012. This will be the biggest Spring Fling ever.
I also want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
