More than 100 homes, churches and businesses were decorated recently for the fifth annual ‘Lighting of the Night’. Visitors viewed the decorations as they drove through the Sandlick, Colson, Colly and Rockhouse area. Three hundred people attended as Santa Claus presented toys and treat bags to 100 children at the Colson Volunteer Fire Department. Above, a certificate of appreciation was presented to Terry Anderson of the Colson Fire Department by event organizer Shirley B. Sexton. She also gave certificates to Letcher Judge/Executive Jim Ward and District Two Magistrate Archie Banks. Kate Adams, 10, was the winner of a UK quilt given by the fire department. Pictured below are her grandmother, Penny Adams, who picked up the quilt for her, and Dylan Ballou. The quilt was made by Kathy Parker and Susan Craft to earn money for fire department activities.
