The Jasper Merchants Association is seeking YOUR help in Replacing or Repairing the Christmas Decorations that are put out in front of the County Courthouse from just after Thanksgiving to the first of the New Year.
The current Christmas Tree Ornaments are old and outdated and need so much repair or repainting or to be totally replaced. If you wish to replace an Ornament, you can personalize it but it needs to be the extra large ones and outdoor style.
The current Reindeer wire style are worn out and the majority of the ones we have no longer move, work, or light up. At last count from last year, only 4 of the required 9 that pull Santa’s sleigh work completely.
The current Nativity Scene is extremely old and out-dated. None of them light up anymore, we are missing several of the main pieces – we no longer have Joseph and one of the Wise Men. The nativity scene that we have are all made of hollow plastic and some of the ones we have left, the paint is fading badly or cracked and broken.
Pickens County owns and puts up the Christmas Tree. The Ornaments were purchased by the Lions Club many years ago, like in the 60’s to 70’s as well as the other decorations. The Nativity Scene, Reindeer, 8ft Santa, and Santa Sleigh have been passed on to the JMA to take care of and keep placing in front of the Courthouse.
We want to put pride back into our County and City by having decorations that people want to stop and look at while they visit or come through town. If YOU, Your Business, Your Organization can help by making a Monetary Donation or by Completely Replacing an item that is needed.
Please Contact the JMA @ 706-253-3303. All Donations are Tax Deductible.
