Grantville Christmas News:


Calico Christmas Cancelled


Christmas Tree Lighting Set For December 4


Christmas Parade and Other Christmas Events Being Planned


     The bad news is that there will no Calico Christmas in Grantville this year.  However, the good news is that other events are now being planned instead, including the already announced Christmas Parade, which is still scheduled for December 13.  Details of the Parade and the other events will be announced later.


     There is one event that is ready to be announced now and that is the Christmas Tree Lighting, which will be held on Thursday night December 4 at 6:30 PM in Colley Park on Main Street in Grantville. The lighting ceremony will involve the singing of Christmas Carols by the students at Glanton Elementary School. 


     Grantville is a small city in southern Coweta County located at Exit 35 on Interstate 85.  It is named after Mr. L.P. Grant, who served for some time during the 19th century as the President of the railroad running through Grantville.  Colley Park is named after the Colley family which built and lived in the historic Bonnie Castle mansion for many years.  The Bonnie Castle will be involved in the soon to be anounced Christmas events.  The Glanton Elementary school is named after Mr. Thomas Glanton, who served for many years as teacher, coach, and principal of the Grantville High School.
