Eubank’s ‘Christmas at the Cabin’ a huge success

Community News

The Eubank Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all of the sponsors and workers who helped make their annual “Christmas at the Cabin” on Dec. 7 and 8 such a huge success.

They would also like to thank all the participants who came out on a dreary, wet Saturday afternoon to be in the annual Christmas parade.

There were over 500 adults and children who came through the cabin on these two nights to see Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus (a/k/a Danny and Joy Karriker).

Every child received a toy with everyone being treated to fruit, cookies, cakes, apple cider, hot chocolate or coffee.

Some of the toys which were given away after the Cabin was over were given in the drawing.

These gifts were due to the generosity of the public, the sponsors and fire department members.

In the drawing, the Eubank Volunteer Fire Department gave 117 larger gifts to lucky children who had registered for the drawing.

The winners of the big prizes of a boys and girls’ 20-inch bicycle were Joshua Salyers and Faith Warfield.

Once again, a big thanks to all who made this annual event a huge success for the children of the Eubank area.

Norman Rutheford is chief of the Eubank Volunteer Fire Department.
