Thank You from the Norfolk Lions
Gnome for the Holidays, 1st Place - Norfolk Lions
The Norfolk Lions would like to thank everyone who came out to welcome Santa Claus to town during the annual Santa Parade, held on Sunday, December 4. The Lions would also like to thank the contestants who participated in the first annual tree decorating contest “Holiday on the Hill.”
Many parade groups helped lead Santa to Town Hill, including the Norfolk Fire Department, Scouts, KPHS cheerleaders, KPHS band, Norfolk Cooperative Preschool, Federated Church Youth Group & Leaders, Chiefs cheerleaders, Exhale dancers, and the Norfolk Select Board. On Town Hill, families and friends had photos taken with Santa, courtesy of Norfolk Lions photographer Erich Karasko.
The Norfolk Recreation Department served up much needed hot chocolate, while Ivy Music cranked up the holiday spirit by leading everyone in Christmas caroling. Event goers cast their votes for their favorite themed tree in the Holiday on the Hill tree decorating contest. The evening culminated with the town’s annual tree lighting.
