Featured will be assorted activities for all ages and participants are encouraged to dress warmly, bring a smile and a carload of friends. "We want to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in style, country style, at 'A Very Country Christmas,' " said event organizer, Pastor Stephen Hay of Wilson First Baptist Church.
Activities include an assortment of great holiday festivities, traditional Christmas fare and much more. "The Giving Tree" is now in its second year and promises to be the biggest Christmas present exchange ever to take place in Wilson.
