SCSO Celebrates Holiday Season

By Staff | Dec 5, 2018

The Sistersville Community Service Organization will again sponsor the annual Christmas parade in Sistersville on Friday, Dec. 7, 7 p.m. “Let It Snow” has been selected as the theme. Tyler Consolidated High School’s award-winning marching band will lead the parade. Named as the “2018 Parade Marshal” is Eric Peters, Executive Director of the Tyler County Development Authority.

The SCSO encourages the community for its participation in the parade festivities, so the tradition continues.

Following the parade, Santa Claus will be available to meet all the children at the Gaslight Theater. Music will be provided.

At 5:30 p.m., the public is invited to meet in front of the City Building for singing Christmas music. At 6 p.m., the lighting of the Christmas Tree will be completed by Mayor Bill Rice.
