Christmas Present From Grantville Day & LaGrange Grocery:


Clydesdale Horses Come To Grantville On December 9 !!


Toys And Food For Needy Children To Be Collected


     All kinds of interesting things have happened in the history of Grantville.  The latest concerns the famous (Budweiser) Clydesdale Horses, which were part of the plans for this year's Grantville Day festival.  When the Clydesdales could not come to Grantville Day (whose official name this year was the Grantville Days Crosstie Festival), the Grantville Day Committee scheduled them instead for Tuesday December 9 as a Christmas present to Grantville to be part of this year's Grantville Christmas celebrations.  To be more precise, they are a Christmas present both from the Grantville Day Committee and from the LaGrange Grocery, which is also involved in the planning.


     The Clydesdales will be on display both in their famous trotting mode and also stationery to give the spectators an opportunity to photograph these fabulous horses.  Since the Clydedales do not make that many appearances, anyone interested should be sure to take advantage of this opportunity.  They will only be here for two hours:  from 5:30 PM through 7:30 PM.  The place will be the site of Ann Long's trailers, which is located on Hwy. 29 going south about a quarter mile past Exit 35 on the left side of the road just past the gas-station/stores.  


     It is not certain where or not Santa will appear but one thing which will happen is that the spectators will be given an opportunity to play Santa by donating non-perishable foods and new unwrapped toys, which will be distributed to needy Grantville families for Christmas.
