There will be a private sponsors preview held from 6 to 8:30 pm on Nov. 17. This showing is open to business, churches and individuals that supported the event.
According to the Depot owners and event organizers Joyce and Danny Hammac, they came up with the idea about six months ago to have a “family friendly event that would benefit the Christian Learning Center.”
“We just thought it would be nice for the community to be able to come together to have a holiday experience like this without having to drive to Knoxville. Its a family friendly event for everyone that benefits the Christian Learning Center,” Danny Hammac said.
Campbell County Christian Learning Center Director Janet Henry said she wanted to day a big “thanks to all who sponsored the event, as well as to The Depot for hosting and organizing.”
