First Annual Tree Lighting

Marshall County held its first annual Christmas tree lighting on the courthouse lawn on Dec.1, following the Christmas Parade around the square. The newly-formed nonprofit group, Marshall County Christmas, contacted local businesses and individuals to help support what the group hopes to become a tradition for all families of Marshall County. Mary Hale stated, "We would like to work with the Madill Beautification Committee and any other groups in the future to have something similar to a ‘festival of lights’ for families to enjoy along with the annual tree lighting." After Hale led the community in prayer, Josefa and Horacio Huerta of J&H Roofing did the honors of the first lighting in memory of Josefa's father who passed away earlier this year. Hot chocolate and cookies were sold, and donations were accepted to help raise funds for Christmases to come.
