This year’s Imboden Celebration of Christmas was a great success. No prizes were given but the winner was the resident’s of Imboden and the surrounding area. I would like to say thanks to Buddy Williams, Billy Powell, Gene Ponder, Doug and Peggy Swink, Jimmy Jones, Michael Wildrick and Larry McLeod for help with the lineup and a Special Thanks to Shawn Johnson who could not be at the parade but made sure Santa made it. Thanks to the Imboden, Ravenden and Black Rock Fire Departments and Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department. Thank you to Denny Durham at Imboden RV and the Lawrence County Library for use of their lots. Thank You to Mitch Walton and the Sloan-Hendrix Schools for their help and use of buildings. Thanks to the Ministerial Alliance for the after parade activities. Thank You to all the participants, who braved the cold tempature, without you there would not have been a parade. Tou are all the true spirit of Christmas.
