Roscoe Candlelightings start

| December 3, 2012

COSHOCTON – The annual Christmas candlelighting at Roscoe Village always brings smiles and holiday cheer to all ages. The first candlelighting of the year was no exception, held Dec. 1, with WTNS’ very own Tom Thompson lighting the first candle and sharing a heartwarming story about Christmas as a youth, parent and now grandparent. Here, Thompson lights a child’s candle as those gathered sang the first verse of “Silent Night, O Holy Night” as their candle was lit. The tree in the heart of the village – which always brings “oohs” and “aahs” from the crowd as it comes alive with light – came from the Jim and Patty Mercer property. The couple used to live in the village and always enjoyed seeing the lit tree during the holiday’s and were inspired to provide this year’s tree. There are two more candlelightings in the village, Saturday, Dec. 8 and Saturday, Dec. 15. The event starts at 6 p.m. with music at 5:45 p.m.

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; 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.
