Large turnout for Lighting of the Star

Tuesday, December 25, 2018
On Dec. 7, seemingly every child in the Shell Knob area was present for the annual Lighting of the Star event held at Central Crossing Senior Center. Jerry Arnold, Shell Knob Seniors, Inc., CEO, kicked off the festivities and lit the Christmas trees. Soup, Chili and cookies were available to all, courtesy of Shell Knob Elementary School. The school kids sang some festive holiday jingles, and Roger Martz read the biblical Christmas story. Mr. and Mrs. Claus were present to see the children. There was no official head count, but by all appearances, this was likely the most well-attended Lighting of the Star event to date. Contributed photo
