THE DANTE COMMUINITY CHRISTMAS PARADE took place on the afternoon of December 8, 2018. Children of all ages participated in the happy occasion. Check out the photos below – you may see yourself, your families, or your friends.
Oganized by the Dante First Assembly of God, the theme of this year’s parade was “The Love of Christ-Mas.”
Now let’s take a stroll down memory lane and recall two special Dante Christmases of years gone by. The first memory is a distribution of Christmas treats by the Clinchfield Coal Corp. at the Clinchfield Inn. The year was 1949. Were you there?
The second Dante Christmas memory is from 1985. It was a cold, snowy day but that didn’t matter. A sizeable crowd turned out to see Santa arrive by train and to enjoy Christmas fellowship with their neighbors. Look closely – you just may see a more youthful version of yourself!
