The scenes of Christmas are all around us
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev’rywhere you go. ...’’
Those are the opening words from the popular Christmas song written by Meredith Willson in 1951. The words rang true those many years ago, and still do to this today, as a couple of events held last weekend prove. In Herscher last Friday night, the village held its annual Christmas celebration, which included a parade and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus among its highlights. On Sunday afternoon, the annual Turkey for Tots shopping trip to Meijer was provided for needy area children. Organized by the Kankakee Valley Beverage Association, volunteers treated more than 100 children to gifts they might not have received otherwise.
