Holiday spirit felt in weekend activities

| December 11, 2012

COSHOCTON – There were plenty of holiday events to enjoy this past weekend.

The Pomerene Center for the Arts offered sweet treats and musical entertainment Friday night at its annual cookie contest.

Sixteen dozen cookies made by 11 different bakers were judged by the father and son team of Evan and Mike Abood. Evan also shared his musical talents with those in attendance.

The Coshocton Christian Tabernacle also presented The Live Nativity Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The drive-thru event took people through the journey of Jesus’ life. This was the 15th year for the annual event.

Roscoe Village also had a special guest this weekend at Shaker House Antiques.

Roger Moore, a Native American with a Melungeon background was dressed in his reenactors costume and shared authentic jewelry that he makes.

“I really love history and not just Native American history,” he said. “I also like Colonial American history. My wife, family and I focus on a 75 year period from about 1750 to 1812. A lot of things took place in that small window of time that made big changes to how our world turned out.”

Moore will be back at Shaker House Antiques from noon to close Saturday, Dec 15.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
