The Lil’ Miss and Mr. Christmas contest, sponsored by Epsilon Sigma Alpha, will run throughout the month of November.
Canisters have been placed in businesses around town to collect donations of support for the children who have been entered in the contest. Two winning child entrants will receive a monetary gift. They also get to ride in the annual Christmas Parade of Lights to be held Saturday evening, Dec. 7. Each of the contestants receives a Christmas stocking filled with goodies.
Children who are entered in this year’s contest include Vada Cass, Faylee Ferguson, Liliana Guillen, Brooklyn Hinman, Gracie Hyslop, Vivian Miller, Keylee Radford, Kaylynn Stevens, Kylee Stevens, Logan Burch, Mason Fohn, Ford Gosvener, R.J. Malone, Cash Reece, Trenton Reese, Jonathan Riddle, Tyler Ross and Christian Rowland.
All proceeds from the project benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. ESA members ask that when you see a canister on the counter of a business, please drop in some change to support this worthy cause.
