On behalf of the Cairo Community Foundation, thank you to all the home and business owners who decorated for the 1st Cairo Christmas Light Tour. Also thank you to Santa and Mrs. Claus for meeting with all the visitors and making special visits to area homes. Thank you to the Sautter’s who donated the use of their ATV as Santa’s sleigh. Big thank you to the Watering Hole and the Vault for serving hot chocolate and making special to-go menus for the evening. Your participation gave a lot of people some much needed Christmas Cheer!!!
Thank you to everyone who came out and viewed the lights, shared some memories, had a conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, sampled some hot chocolate, and enjoyed the Cairo Christmas Spirit. There is no way to determine the number of people who visited but we can tell you over 200 cups of hot chocolate went out the door at the Vault. A commercial coffee pot full of hot chocolate was emptied at the Watering Hole.
The contest winner for the evening was B&B Creative with 35% of the votes followed by The Griswold’s, aka Osburn Christmas Vacation and Rockin Newly Weds.
The Foundation Board received some great feedback and plans to host this event again next year. Start planning your light shows for next year!!!
