Holiday events begin as the season starts in Barbour County

Hello from Barbour County!

There is a youth cheer competition today at Philip Barbour High School, beginning at 7 a.m. During this time, there will be a vendor and craft show. Come on out and support our youth, and do some Christmas shopping!

Also today, there is a Christmas Bazaar at the Cross Roads United Methodist Church at Tacy from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Stop by for good food, crafts, a Chinese auction, Christmas items and more.

Today, Nov. 16. is the last day to register children for Philippi City Basketball. Sign up times will be from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and the cost is $35 per player.

If this is the first time they will be playing for Philippi, you will need to bring a copy of their birth certificate.

Thanksgiving will be Nov. 28. Let us remember to be thankful every day for what we have.

There will be no school in Barbour County from Nov. 25-29. Have a safe week!

Philippi’s Christmas parade will take place on Dec. 6, beginning at 7 p.m. This will be followed by the lighting of the tree at the courthouse.

A special Christmas concert for Barbour County featuring area singers and musicians is set for Saturday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m. at the Philippi Baptist Church on Church St.

The Community Christmas Concert is part of the City of Philippi’s “A Covered Bridge Christmas” celebration. The concert is free and open to the public.

Wreathes Across America will be held on Dec. 14 at the Belington Fraternal Cemetery.
