This Weekend in Blythewood
December 18th, 19th & 20th


Thanks to the Town of Blythewood, the Blythewood Chamber of Commerce and their many helpers and sponsors for putting on the 19th Annual Blythewood Christmas Parade.  The faces of the children watching the parade told it all!  It is the season for making memories!


Don't forget that the  Blythewood Historical Society has Bethel Baptist Church Commemorative ornaments for sale at the Nord House on McNulty Rd.  You can also purchase Harold Branham's holiday cards there as well as copies of the Blythewood Scrapbook which makes a great present.  


If you haven't been in the Blythewood Art Center/Visitors' Center now is a great time
to drop by and find that special gift.  Hours are Tuesday -Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  and
Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information call 550-9323.



Now you know..In December 1985, Trinity United Methodist Church held the first Blythewood Christmas Tree Lighting.  Trinity hosted the event with all the other churches in Blythewood participating.

A huge Thank You...
to the Town of Blythewood for sponsoring the Blythewood Christmas Parade.  The Blythewood Chamber of Commerce along with many helpers coordinated the parade with so many behind the scene details. A big thank you to Kitty Kelly and Chris Keefer and the parade committee who put in many hours getting it organized and set up. Plus we can't thank  the Blythewood  Chamber, Digital Bridge and Petsmart enough for donating  2000 stuffed animals to give to  the children who came to the Christmas Parade. I can tell you first hand that the kids were thrilled with their new stuffed animals. And thanks to the largest and greatest crowd ever to the 19th annual Blythewood  Christmas Parade.

Our Town Hall Intern/Reporter writes...
Blythewood High School student, Daniel Malkiewicz recently conducted a community service project addressing hunger in our schools. Daniel provided holiday meals to four families at Blythewood High School, and two to Westwood High School families. “It feels good to know that you provided a meal to someone less fortunate than you,” said Daniel. With help from Food Lion of Blythewood and God’s Storehouse of Columbia, Daniel was able to make a difference in the community. “I couldn’t have done it without the supporting cast of the Town of Blythewood staff, Smiley Tynes of God’s Storehouse, and Food Lion of Blythewood. All of them made it possible for me to make a difference,” said Daniel.
