Perhaps the Christmas season officially begins in Post the first Saturday of December with the lighted Christmas parade. However, you can be sure that the spirit of Christmas continues in this community all the way to December 25. Actually, this genuine spirit of giving is evident in Post throughout the year, but for now, let’s considers in particular the spirit of this season.
Here are just a few examples of kindness and hospitality that have recently been exhibited by the community of Post. We invite you through "Comments" to share others.
Representatives from the Post Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Post welcomed a tour group to Main Street Dec. 10. Amid the sounds and lights of Christmas, the tour bus stopped for cider and cookies provided by Mary Norman, owner of Caprock Heirloom. This busload was only a fraction of the sold-out audience who attended the Saturday afternoon performance of “Bethlehem” at the Ragtown Gospel Theater.
Girl Scout Troop# 6864 of Post delivered a care package to Mama Nell, as part of one of the requirements for their badge called, Model Citizen. Girls in picture include left to right: Caitlyn Silva, J'nia Brown, Shayla Brown, Evangelina Zubia, Ryleigh Graves, Averi Graves, and Haliea Apolinar. Leaders: Alicia Graves, and Joni Huffman.
Ila Workman, Director of Trailblazers Senior Citizen Center, got lots of help creating bags of goodies to deliver to approximately 70 elderly and homebound residents of Post. Trailblazers is a vital part of our community, providing home delivery meals on weekdays as well as serving tasty, nutritious meals at the center.
One of the best examples of what most consider the true spirit of the Christmas season is the Free Community Christmas Supper, Christmas night at 6 p.m. at Trailblazers Senior Citizens Center, 205 E. 10th in Post. All are welcome to join together to enjoy a wonderful meal and a great time of community fellowship. Organized two years ago by Robert (Bubba) Smith, members of the community provide food for the meal and Smith has emphasized that everyone is invited to attend. If you would like more information about this very special community Christmas supper, call 806-549-1562.
