From the Mayor
Warm houses, the smell of baking, children laughing, and the sense of waiting
for someone to come is in the air. Jolly Ole Saint Nick is coming! He will visit Opp on his merry way around the globe.
Kids love this time of year and so do I.
December is finally here, this is my favorite month of the year. It holds my favorite holiday, Christmas.
Christmas is a very special time. It’s a time to celebrate our dear Savior’s birth and the beautiful life he lived here on earth, and all the gifts he entrusts us with.
My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashion or modern is very simple, love others, give your time when you can, help ease others burdens, and let them see the love of God in you. With that, Christmas will live all year.
Downtown Opp looks wonderful all decked out in lights and banners. All the houses showing off their festive decorations couldn’t look better to me.
Our Christmas Parade is always so much fun, I love seeing all the hard work and talent come together in the floats. The lighting of the City’s Christmas tree is magical; it kicks off the beginning of the holiday season for us.
The Depot will be filled with kids having milk and cookies and waiting to see Santa. Come and enjoy this fun time with us. We look forward to seeing you there.
In closing I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May you enjoy all the happiness the season can bring and may His eternal love bring you peace throughout the coming year.
