Christmas on the Mall
Thank you so much to everyone who helped with the Candy Cane Lane, Santa Claus Square, and Gingerbread Lane this year.  The mall looked wonderful, and all of the trees were fun to look at.  A special thank you to Annie Feenie from Royal 4 Home Services and employees from the Avon Park Public Works department for getting all of the decorations up and working so people could enjoy the festive display.  We also want to thank Walmart and VFW Post 9853 for their donations to Christmas on the Mall.  And thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with the set up, and to the businesses who participated in the Christmas tree displays - they were all great!
