    2022 CHRISTMAS IN THE PARKYOU WANT TO DO IT AGAIN??DEC 7-10 2022 5:30-10:00 pm
    Sometimes things just workout as you planned and prayed for. Our Chamber of Commerce's new event "2021 Christmas in the State Park", which was held last week, Dec 8-11 2021, was more successful than we could have imagined.This event could not have happened without the cooperation of the Lake D'Arbonne staff (headed by Demetrius Fields and Penny Wainwright) at the State Park and the Louisiana State Parks System in Baton Rouge. We could not have done it without our sponsors, provided the support to make this event possible, including title sponsor Union General Hospital. Gold sponsors were Origin Bank, Union Tourism Commission and Benoit Ford. And 35 merchants and 7 vendors participated in this event.The merchants worked very hard to prepare Christmas scenes near the Visitor Center & along the roads. Plus local churches and schools prepared Christmas scenes and Christmas cards which were posted along the main road. We created a food & crafts court in the FEMA field with 7 vendors (their food sold out 3 nights in a row) and best of all, Santa visited with lots of kids in the boat launch area. I want to recognize so many people that worked so hard to made this event come off flawlessly, including our volunteer leaders Tuffy & Bonnie Fields, Randy McKinnie, Claudia Wade, Dusty Gates, Terry Morris, Cindy Hammond. Our admissions staff including Paula Strickland, Dawn Frasier, Mary Barrios, Wade Gunter, Danielle Harkins, Gay Nell Pepper and Aaron Black were troopers, handling 920 vehicles entering the park, plus the campers, merchants and vendors. I know I've left out many names that were so helpful, but please accept my heartfelt appreciation for everything you've done.So "Do You Want to Do It Again???" I know I do, as this has become a signature event. Yesterday, I talked with the Office of State Parks in Baton Rouge and they were very impressed and willing to provide the state park availability again.Next year's event has already been set for Dec 7-10th, 2022, at the Lake D'Arbonne State Park. I've been told that the camping area has already been fully booked. WOW!!Next year's event will be even bigger and better. If you are willing to volunteer to help with the event, please contact me, Jon McKinnie (318) 368-3947. We can always use more help.So please mark your 2022 calendar and make plans to visit our "2022 Christmas in the State Park".
