Santa’s Helper

| December 7, 2015

The Roscoe Village candlelighting tradition spans many years and hundreds of visitors enjoyed a pleasant evening for the first ceremony of the 2015 season. The tree that came alive with lights to the “oohs” and “aahs” of everyone watching was donated by the Steve Jones family and is unique in that it was once their Christmas tree. They wanted the tree to have a second opportunity to delight boys and girls of all ages as it did with their own children years before. Pictured helping Santa Claus light the candle is Sophie Meiser as the elf and sister Maddy read the story. Two more candlelightings are scheduled this year, on Dec. 12 and Dec. 19 and begin at 6 p.m. More photos are online at www.coshoctonbeacontoday.com.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
