In appreciation for their seasonal efforts, committee members for Christmas In The Park presented several associates at the Clay County Courthouse with a commemorative plaque.

"They do such a good job," Christmas In The Park Board President Linda Ray said.

Clay County Commissioner President Charlie Brown concurred.

"I'm glad to see these (people) get recognized," Brown told The Brazil Times. "They work real hard. This place looks like Santa's workshop around Christmastime."

This is the first year Christmas In The Park has presented a plaque of its kind.

Courthouse associates honored included Bev Timko, Peggy Hayes, Kathy Collins, Wayne Knox, Annette Walden, Rick Hayes and Garrett Alumbaugh.

During the season, associates hang decorations -- created by local elementary school students -- on a Christmas Tree, which sits in the courthouse rotunda.

In addition, they spend time prior to the annual Christmas In The Park Parade serving hot chocolate and cookies to residents.

"This is one of those things that make this community a better place to live," Brown said.

That was a nice recognition for well deserved endeavors! Kudos to Christmas in the Park members for doing this, and kudos to the courthouse associates for their hard work!
