Warsaw welcomes Christmas season

| December 1, 2014

DSC_0107WARSAW – Warsaw Elementary School Honors Choir sang and entertained the crowd at the Nov. 30 candlelighting in Warsaw with a number of Christmas songs including “Jingle Bell Rock,” which they also danced to. The free event was presented by the Warsaw Business Association, the Warsaw Lions Club and the River View Ministerial Association and was held in the gazebo at the village square. This year’s honorary candlelighter was Jack Cullison and the event was held in memory of the late Betty Hart. “She helped with this for many years and was a mainstay in the community,” said Tom Roahrig, president of the Warsaw Business Association. “She led a real strong life and was really involved.”  During the ceremony, the Rev. Luanne West from the Warsaw United Methodist Church also delivered a message of hope and encouraged people to remember that the Christmas season is really about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, the savior of all mankind. “Remember that babe in the manger also was the man on the cross,” Cullison added.

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!
